Ge$$_{1-x}$$Fe$$_x$$ (Ge:Fe) shows ferromagnetic behavior up to a relatively high temperature of 210 K and hence is a promising material for spintronic applications compatible with Si technology. We have studied its underlying electronic structure by soft X-ray angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy measurements and first-principles supercell calculation. We observed finite Fe 3$$d$$ components in the states at the Fermi level ($$Erm_F$$) in a wide region of momentum space, and the $$Erm_F$$ was located $$sim$$0.35 eV above the valence-band maximum of the host Ge. Our calculation indicates that the $$Erm_F$$ is also within the deep acceptor-level impurity band induced by the strong $$p$$-$$d$$($$t_2$$) hybridization. We conclude that the additional minority-spin $$d(e)$$ electron characteristic of the Fe$$^{2+}$$ state is responsible for the short-range ferromagnetic coupling between Fe atoms.
