The condition for the semiconductor-insulator interface
equivalently is determined by a continuous potential and by an
applied surface charge density
according to the
The carrier flux and the carrier energy flux are zero.
The lattice temperature
is continuous. To
describe the Fermi level pinning at the surface due to a high
density of states for traps, distributed surfaces charges are
introduced which describe the surface depletion due to the band
bending. The current densities
the energy fluxes
are set to zero.
