An experimental evidence for the strong in-plane anisotropy of the electron effective mass tensor in 6H-SiC is reported. Furthermore, two components of the mass tensor in 6H-SiC, m(M-Gamma)* and m(M-K)*, have been resolved by making a theoretical bridge between Hall effect measurements and cyclotron resonance experiments, based on the Boltzmann transport equation. The method to resolve the in-plane effective mass components is also applied for 4H-SiC, which have already been resolved by cyclotron resonance. The values determined by our method are fully consistent with available experiments and calculations.
