SiC epitaxy growth using chloride-based CVD
2012 (English)In: Physica. B, Condensed matter, ISSN 0921-4526, Vol. 407, no 10, 1467-1471 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The growth of thick epitaxial SiC layers needed for high-voltage, high-power devices is investigated with the chloride-based chemical vapor deposition. High growth rates exceeding 100 mu m/h can be obtained, however to obtain device quality epilayers adjustments of the process parameters should be carried out appropriately for the chemistry used. Two different chemistry approaches are compared: addition of hydrogen chloride to the standard precursors or using methyltrichlorosilane, a molecule that contains silicon, carbon and chlorine. Optical and electrical techniques are used to characterize the layers.
