The role of defects in heterojunctions was investigated. The density of such defects required to pin the Fermi level or to affect the band offset was estimated using simple electrostatic considerations. We conclude that it is very unlikely that defects play any role in determining the band offsets, but they might affect the Fermi-level position at the interface.
