Abstract

We investigate ballistic spin transport through a two-dimensional mesoscopic metal/semiconductor/metal double junction in the presence of spin-orbit interactions. It is shown that finite transverse and/or longitudinal spin currents can flow in the presence of the Rashba and Dresselhaus terms.
