The growth of fluorescent SiC using Fast Sublimation Growth Process was demonstrated using different types of SiC source materials. These were prepared by (i) high-temperature hot pressing, (ii) chemical vapor deposition and (iii) physical vapor transport. The optimized growth rates of 50 μm/h, 170 μm/h and 200 μm/h were achieved using the three types of sources, respectively. The best results in respect to growth rates are obtained using higher density sources. Fluorescent SiC layers with mirror-like morphology, very good crystal quality and yellowish or warm white light photoluminescence at room temperature were grown using all three types of the source materials.
