We analyzed the applicability of original Datta-Das proposal for spin-field-effect transistor (spin-FET) to nonballistic regime based on semiempirical Monte Carlo simulation for spin transport. It is demonstrated that the spin helix state in two-dimensional electron gas system is sufficiently robust against D'yakonov-Perel' spin relaxation to allow an operation of Datta-Das-type spin-FET in the nonballistic transport regime. It is also shown that the spin diffusion length of the spin helix state can be increased with an in-plane electrical field along the [110] direction. In marked contrast to early proposals for nonballistic spin-FETs, the “on” and “off” states...
