In this work I review of the theoretical and experimental issue related to the Rashba Spin-Orbit interaction in semiconductor nanostructures. The Rashba spin-orbit interaction has been a promising candidate for controlling the spin of electrons in the field of semiconductor spintronics. In this work, I focus study of the electrons spin and holes in isolated semiconductor quantum dots and rings in the presence of magnetic fields. Spin-dependent thermodynamic properties with strong spin-orbit coupling inside their band structure in systems are investigated in this work. Additionally, specific heat and magnetization in two dimensional, one-dimensional quantum ring and dot nanostructures with Spin Orbit Interaction are discussed.
