Sublimation epitaxy for fabrication of thick 4H-SiC layers has been studied with respect to surface morphology, structural quality, and purity. The surface morphology of thick (50-100 mum) epilayers is smooth, even though the growth rate was 100 mum/h. These surfaces are obtained within a parameter window for morphological stability. The structural perfection is confirmed by high-resolution X-Ray diffraction measurements and the epilayer quality is improved compared with the substrate. The limitation in purity is dependent mainly on the purity of the SiC source material. The growth system purity, mainly graphite and Ta parts of the growth crucible, is also of major importance. Results from intentional doping for high-resistive, semi-insulating and p-type material are presented.
