Electrons with spin-orbit coupling moving in mesoscopic structures can often exhibit local spin polarization. In this paper, we study the influence of the Rashba coupling on the scattering of two-dimensional electrons from a circular disk. It is observed that spin-polarized regions exist, even if the incident electrons are unpolarized. In addition to the distributions of charge and spin current in the near-field region, we also analyze the symmetry and the differential cross section of the scattering.
