Paper Title:
Investigation of Structural Stability in 4H-SiC Structures with Heavy Ion Implanted Interface
  Abstract

We investigate the possibility of controlling formation of stacking faults (SFs) at the interface region by implanting the 4H-SiC substrate with low-energy antimony ions (75 keV Sb+) prior to conventional CVD growth of the homoepitaxial layers. This approach is based on the solidsolution hardening concept, according to which interaction of impurity atoms with dislocations makes the motion of the latter more difficult. Photoluminescence imaging spectroscopy is employed to investigate incorporation of Sb+ implants at the buried interface and also to assess its impact on structural degradation. Spectral results are analyzed considering both the onset of n-type doping and irradiation damage. The latter factor was estimated separately from supplementary measurements of high-energy (2.5 MeV H+) proton-irradiated 4H-SiC epilayers. We compare results of optically stimulated SF formation in virgin and Sb implanted regions and provide a comprehensive picture of the defect evolution, including microscopic details of the imminent nucleation sites.
