The origin of a peak in the reststrahlen region of SiC
2012 (English)In: Physica. B, Condensed matter, ISSN 0921-4526, Vol. 407, no 10, 1525-1528 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A peak in the reststrahlen region of SiC is analyzed in order to establish the origin of this peak. The peak can be associated with a thin damaged layer on the SiC wafers, and a relation is found between surface roughness and the height of this peak, by modeling the damaged layer as an additional layer when simulating the reflectivity from the wafers.
