4H-SiC floating junction Schottky barrier diodes (Super-SBDs) were fabricated. It was found that their properties are closest to the theoretical limitation, defined by the relationship between specific on-state resistance and breakdown voltage of 4H SiC-unipolar devices. They have a p-type floating layer designed as line-and-spacing. The specific on-state resistances of Super-SBDs with a few micrometers of spacing width were found to be nearly equal to those of conventional SBDs without p-type floating layer. The breakdown voltages of Super-SBDs were higher than those of conventional SBDs. Accordingly the properties of Super-SBDs have improved the trade-off between specific on-state resistance and breakdown voltage, and the highest value to date for Baliga’s Figure of Merit (BFOM) has been obtained.
