We study the system of a helix shaped quantum wire with spin orbit coupling (SOC). We say the system has conducting electrons. I a specific regime, when the eigenspins point along the angular direction of the wire, and if the magnetic field generated by a current in the wire is large enough, and other conditions, then the total energy of the wire will be in the state of having non-zero current, thus if connected to itself in a loop, it will spontaneously acquire a current.
