We consider electron tunneling from a nonmagnetic n-type semiconductor (n-S) into a ferromagnet (FM) through a very thin forward-biased Schottky barrier resulting in efficient extraction of electron spin from a thin n-S layer near FM-S interface at low spin polarization of the current. We show that this effect can be used for an efficient polarization radiation source in a heterostructure where the accumulated spin-polarized electrons are injected from n-S and recombine with holes in a quantum well. The radiation polarization depends on a bias voltage applied to the FM-S junction.
