The interface of graphene with ferromagnets is very interesting for spintronics due to possible use of peculiar graphene electronic structure in transport and spin-filter applications when graphene is used together with nickel or cobalt as ferromagnetic contacts for spin injection and detection [1]. Despite a strong hybridization between graphene and ferromagnetic substrate states the graphene Dirac cone was observed by angle-resolved photoemission without gap between pi and pi* parts [2]. Here we report strong spin polarization of the Dirac cone measured by spin- and angle-resolved photoemission. Wave-vector dependent measurements exclude a Rashba-type spin-orbit contribution to the spin polarization; ferromagnetic origin is verified by reversal of the remanent magnetization. The importance of the spin polarization at the interface for spin filtering is pointed out.
