Ion implantation is currently the tool for selective area doping of SiC. However, ion implantation results in crystal damage. High-temperature implantation and annealing (greater than or equal to 1600 degreesC) are used to restore the crystal order. High resolution electron microscopy and electron-energy loss elemental mapping were used to study the nature of defects found in both Al and B implanted SiC. Microscopy revealed small loops on the basal (0001) planes when the dopant concentration is higher than 10(17) cm(-3). Defect size increases with annealing temperature and time. Elemental mapping revealed an elevated level of dopants in the regions of the defects.
