Article Preview

Thick epitaxial layers of 4H-SiC both n- and p-type were grown using horizontal Hot- Wall CVD (HWCVD). No large difference in the carrier lifetime was observed for the layers grown on n- and p-type substrates. The carrier lifetime usually increases with the increasing thickness of the epilayer. To investigate if the growth conditions and material properties are changing during the longer growth time a sample was prepared with uniformly varying epilayer thickness from 20μm on one side to 110μm on other side. Results of optical and electrical measurements, the variation in background impurities and other deep levels are discussed. Furthermore, the properties of thick layers grown on on-axis substrates are presented.
