A systematic n-type doping study has been performed on 4H- and 6H-SiC epilayers grown at high growth rate using chloride-based CVD. The effect of temperature, pressure, growth rate, C/Si-, Cl/Si ratio and dopant flow on the incorporation of the nitrogen and phosphorus donor atoms have been investigated. It is found that the effect of the C/Si-ratio on the incorporation of nitrogen or phosphorus atoms is similar to what has been reported for the standard low growth rate process without addition of chlorine. The Cl/Si-ratio seems to affect the nitrogen incorporation at growth rates higher than 65 μm/h. The doping concentration is stable against variations in growth rate, growth pressure and growth temperature for the nitrogen doped layers.
