Weak localization (WL) is the result of quantum interference corrections to the semi-
classical theory of transport. It manifests itself in good conductors as a negative
or positive correction to the electrical conductivity depending on the symmetry properties
of the system. In the presence of spin-orbit coupling (SOC), the correction is positive and
hence manifests as an antilocalizing behavior. SOC affects WL because it yields a finite
spin relaxation time, which introduces a cutoff in the logarithmic singularity associated
with the so-called triplet channel of the particle-particle ladder, known as the Cooperon.
Since the singlet and the triplet channels contribute to WL with opposite signs, the eli-
mination of the triplet leaves the singlet alone, which then produces the antilocalizing
behavior. WL effects in the presence of the Rashba SOC have been
analyzed by several authors, most of the attention having been focused on the electrical
conductivity only. It is the aim of the present work to extend this ana-
lysis to the other transport parameters mentioned above, whose experimental study has
developed considerably in the last few years. We find that σEC and the spin Hall
angle γSH = eσSHC/σ0 acquire logarithmic corrections which can be absorbed in terms drift
of the renormalization of the scattering time appearing in the electrical conductivity σ0.
We emphasize that σSHC is not the full spin conductivity σSHC which would be measured
in an experiment. It can be proved that σSHC can be expressed in terms of σEC and
σSHC. The renormalizations of both σEC and γSH compensate in such a way that σSHC drift
has no correction as expected on general arguments.
