Paper Title:
Identification of the Triplet State N-V Defect in Neutron Irradiated Silicon Carbide by Electron Paramagnetic Resonance
  Abstract

Two types of a new triplet centers labeled as N-V have been observed in heavily neutron irradiated (dose of 1021 cm-2) and high-temperature annealed (2000°C) 6H-SiC crystals. The centers have an axial symmetry along c-axis. Anisotropic hyperfine splitting due to the one 14N nucleus has been observed. The EPR spectra of N-V defects in the triplet state in 6H-SiC reveal strong temperature dependence. The parameters of these centers are similar to that for well-known N-V center in diamond. It seems to consist of silicon vacancy and carbon substitutional nitrogen in the adjacent lattice cites oriented along c-axis. Similar to the diamond N-V centers in SiC have been produced by neutron irradiation and high-temperature annealing of the crystals containing nitrogen. For the first shell the structure of the N-V defect in 6H-SiC is practically identical with that in diamond. The charge state of this defect seems to be +1 compare with neutral state for nitrogensilicon vacancy defect in 6H-SiC with S=1/2.
