We report electrical spin injection and detection in degenerately doped n-type Ge channels using Mn5 Ge 3C0.8/Al2O3/n+ -Ge tunneling contacts for spin injection and detection. The whole structure is integrated on a Si wafer for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor compatibility. From three-terminal Hanle-effect measurements, we observe a spin accumulation up to 10 K. The spin lifetime is extracted to be 38 ps at T = 4 K using Lorentzian fitting, and the spin diffusion length is estimated to be 367 nm due to the high diffusion coefficient of the highly doped Ge channel.
