Paper Title:
On the Mechanism of Twin Boundary Elimination in 3C-SiC(111) Heteroepitaxial Layers on α-SiC Substrates
  Abstract

This paper deals with the formation and propagation of twin boundaries (TBs) inside 3C-SiC layers grown heteroepitaxially on -SiC substrate. The equivalent probability of nucleating 60° rotated 3C islands on such substrate lead to the systematic formation of TB upon coalescence of these islands. Elimination of these defects should occur by bending of the propagation direction. Bending through incoherent TBs is usually encountered during both VLS and CVD growth and it generates crystalline defects due to high built-in energy. One would prefer coherent TBs, formed by two-by-two annihilation of neighbouring TBs, which do not form new defect except microtwin inclusion at the interface. Such TB annihilation seems to be a specificity of growth by VLS mechanism. The mechanism of such bending is discussed
