Article Preview

Forward voltage degradation has been reduced by fabricating diodes on the (000-1)C-face. The reverse recovery characteristics of the 4H-SiC pin diode on the (000-1)C-face have been investigated. The pin diode on the C-face has superior potential to that on the Si-face among all parameters of the reverse recovery characteristics. The pin diode on the Si-face after conducting a current stress test tends to exhibit a fast turn-off as compared with that before conducting the stress test. On the C-face, however, there is little difference in reverse recovery characteristics between before and after conducting the current stress test.
