Spin injection processes of excitons were studied by time-resolved photoluminescence in double quantum wells consisting of Cd0.95Mn0.05Te and CdTe layers. Selective excitation of the magnetic and non-magnetic wells confirms the dominant spin injection process from the magnetic well to the non-magnetic, well. The exciton spin injection from the magnetic quantum well of Cd0.95Mn0.05Te arises with an injection time of 10 ps and induces a transient spin polarization with the degree of 0.20 in the non-magnetic well of CdTe. The exciton spin relaxation time in the CdTe well was found to be sufficiently longer than the exciton lifetime of 38 ps.
