Semi-insulating 6H SiC substrates, 2”, 3” and 100mm in diameter, and n+ 4H SiC substrates, 2” and 3” in diameter, are grown at II-VI using the Advanced Physical Vapor Transport (APVT) technique . The process utilizes high-purity SiC source and employs special measures aimed at the reduction of background contamination. Semi-insulating properties are achieved by precise vanadium compensation, which yields substrates with stable and uniform electrical resistivity reaching ~ 1011 Ω-cm and higher. Conductive n+ 4H SiC crystals with the spatially uniform resistivity of 0.02 W-cm are grown using nitrogen doping. Crystal quality of the substrates, their electrical properties and low temperature photoluminescence are discussed.
