The transfer and generation of extended defects in 4H-SiC epitaxial growth at a high growth rate are examined. An epilayer with virtually no basal plane dislocations (BPDs) is obtained using 4º off Si-face substrates, although the formation of 3C-polytype inclusions is occasionally observed. The behavior of BPDs and threading screw dislocations (TSDs) in epitaxial growth is also investigated by X-ray topography and transmission electron microscopy, and the propagation of BPDs and conversion and generation of TSDs in the epilayers are discussed.
