Interface Defects in n-Type 3C-SiC/SiO2: An EPR Study of Oxidized Porous Silicon Carbide Single Crystals
The defects at the 3C-SiC/SiO2 interface have been studied by X-band EPR spectroscopy in oxidized porous 3C-SiC. One interface defect is detected; its spin Hamiltonian parameters, spin S=1/2, C3V symmetry, g//=2.00238 and g⊥=2.00317, central hyperfine interaction (CHF) with one carbon atom and AB//=48G and superhyperfine (SHF) interaction with three equivalent Si neighbour atoms and TB//=12.4G, allow us to attribute the center to a sp3 coordinated carbon dangling bond center, PbC.
