Journal of Superconductivity: Incorporating Novel Magnetism 16 (2), pp. 369-372.
It is shown that a homogeneous nonequlibrium spin polarization in semiconductor heterostructures results in an electric current. The microscopic origin of the effect is an inherent asymmetry of spin-flip scattering in systems with lifted spin degeneracy caused by k-linear
terms in the Hamiltonian.
