We present first-principles calculations of the zero field spin splitting of energy bands in wurtzite materials. Our calculations reveal that the huge electric fields originating from strong piezo- and pyroelecric character of nitrides do not increase the spin splitting of bands in nitride heterostructures. This implicates long spin lifetimes in quantum structures based on these materials and weak possibility of tuning with external electric field.
