Liu, Ming-Hao and Chen, Son-Hsien and Chang, Ching-Ray (2008) Current-induced spin polarization in spin-orbit-coupled electron systems. Physical Review B (PRB) 78 (16), p. 165316.
Current-induced spin polarization (CISP) is rederived in ballistic spin-orbit-coupled electron systems, based on equilibrium statistical mechanics. A simple and useful picture is correspondingly proposed to help understand the CISP and predict the polarization direction. Nonequilibrium Landauer-Keldysh formalism is applied to demonstrate the validity of the statistical picture, taking the linear ...
