@article{Khaetskii2016GiantES, title={Giant edge spin accumulation in a symmetric quantum well with two subbands}, author={Alexander V. Khaetskii and Jos{\'e} Carlos Egues}, journal={arXiv: Mesoscale and Nanoscale Physics}, year={2016} }

We have studied the edge spin accumulation in a high mobility two-dimensional electron gas formed in a symmetric well with two subbands. This study is strongly motivated by the recent experiment of Hernandez et al. [Phys. Rev. B {\bf 88}, 161305(R) (2013)] who demonstrated the spin accumulation near the edges of a bilayer symmetric GaAs structure in contrast to no effect in a single-layer configuration. The intrinsic mechanism of the spin-orbit interaction we consider arises from the coupling…

A new intersubband-induced SO term is derived which resembles the functional form of the Rashba SO but is nonzero even in symmetric structures, which gives rise to a nonzero ballistic spin-Hall conductivity and can induce an unusual Zitterbewegung with cycloidal trajectories without magnetic fields.

It is argued that in a high-mobility two-dimensional electron system with substantial Rashba spin-orbit coupling, a spin current that flows perpendicular to the charge current is intrinsic, and the intrinsic spin-Hall conductivity has a universal value for zero quasiparticle spectral broadening.
