Based on the modified Su-Schrieffer-Heeger model and the non-equilibrium Green's function current formula, the spin polarization of the ferromagnet-electrode connected organic ferromagnet is theoretically studied. The spin polarization can be suppressed by atomic dimerization and be driven by an applied electric field. We investigate the spin polarization from the viewpoint of energy competitions in different interactions under the electric field. In addition, the ferromagnetic electrodes significantly enhance the spin polarization.
