Using the mean-field approximation, we study the k-space spin textures and local spin currents emerged in the spin-triplet excitonic insulator states of the two-band Hubbard model defined on the square and triangular lattices. We assume a noninteracting band structure with a direct band gap and introduce s-, p-, d-, and f-type cross-hopping integrals, i.e., the hopping of electrons between different orbitals on adjacent sites with four different symmetries. First, we calculate the ground-state phase diagrams in the parameter space of the band filling and interaction strengths, whereby we present the filling dependence of the amplitude and phase of the excitonic order parameters. Then, we demonstrate that the spin textures (or asymmetric band structures) are emerged in the Fermi surfaces by the excitonic symmetry breaking when particular phases of the order parameter are stabilized. Moreover, in the case of the p-type cross-hopping integrals, we.
