Paper Title:
Observation of Deep-Level Centers in 4H-Silicon Carbide Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors by Spin Dependent Recombination
  Abstract

In this study we report on spin-dependent recombination-detected electron spin resonance of interface/near interface defects in 4H-SiC metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors with thermally grown SiO2 gate stacks. We demonstrate a distribution of performance-limiting defects which extends beyond the SiC/SiO2 boundary into the SiC bulk. Our results strongly indicate that the defects are intrinsic and we tentatively identify them as silicon vacancy-like centers on the basis of strong, but imprecisely-resolved, 29Si hyperfine sidepeaks in the magnetic resonance spectrum.
