Abstract

We demonstrate that in an inversion-asymmetric two-dimensional electron system (2DES) with both Rashba and Dresselhaus spin-orbit couplings taken into account, certain transport directions on which no spin precession occurs can be found when the injected spin is properly polarized. By analyzing the expectation value of spin with respect to the injected electron state on each space point in the 2DES, we further show that the adjacent regions with technically reachable widths along these directions exhibit nearly conserved spin. Hence a possible application in semiconductor spintronics, namely, precessionless spin transport wire, is proposed.
