Appendix C. The model considers the effects of band edge unpinning on the transient photocurrent response as the result of the build up of minority carriers at the semiconductor/electrolyte interface. The approach is explained in the paper and also in the notes uploaded here. Three Matlab programs are available here to calculate transient behaviour as a function of input variables. See notes from Alison Walker on how to run the Matlab code. The submitted manuscript is also available here with examples of calculated responses.
