  author={V. Nandal and Sumanshu Agarwal and P. Nair},
With emerging thin film PIN based optoelectronics devices, a significant research thrust is focused on the passivation of trap states for performance enhancement. Among various methods, capacitance frequency technique (CFT) is often employed to quantify trap state parameters, however, the trapped charge induced electrostatic effect on the same is not yet established for such devices. Herein, we present a theoretical methodology to incorporate such effects in the CF characteristics of well… Expand
