Bulk n+-4H-SiC wafers (n=1-2×1019 cm-3) containing annealing-induced stacking faults were examined by Raman scattering. The coupled plasmon-LO mode was observed to shift in a manner consistent with 1018 cm-3 doping in the 4H-SiC. Numerical simulations were performed using a self-consistent Poisson-Schrödinger solver and agree well with the experimental observations of carrier transfer from the 4H-SiC into the 3C-SiC stacking faults. The Raman data also shows that the 3C stacking faults induce a tensile strain on the surrounding 4H-SiC regions.
