An unbiased one-dimensional weak link between two terminals, subjected to the Rashba spin-orbit interaction caused by an AC electric field which rotates periodically in the plane perpendicular to the link, is shown to inject spin-polarized electrons into the terminals. The injected spin polarization has a DC component along the link and a rotating transverse component in the perpendicular plane. In the low-rotation-frequency regime, these polarization components are proportional to the frequency. The DC component of the polarization vanishes for a linearly polarized electric field.
