We use density functional theory to calculate band offsets for different configurations of magnesium oxide-polyethylene interface. Our study shows that band bending occurs at the contact between the polymer and the MgO particle. As a result, the surface of the MgO nanoparticle introduces deep traps up to 2 eV in the material. Also, the calculations indicate the possibility of a double layer formation within the nanoparticle.
