Quantum oscillations of spin current through a III-V semiconductor loop

Abstract
We have investigated the transport of spin polarization through a classically chaotic semiconductor loop with a strong Rashba spin-orbit interaction. We found that if the escape time of a particle is long enough, the configuration averaged spin conductance oscillates strongly with the geometric spin phase. We predict a sizable rotation of spin polarization along its flowing path across the loop from the injector to the collector. We have also discovered a quantized universal spin relaxation in a 2D reservoir connected to such a semiconductor loop.
