Point Defects and their Aggregation in Silicon Carbide
The existence of point defects is one of the key problems in SiC technology. Combined experimental and theoretical investigations can be successful in identification of point defects. We report the identification of a basic intrinsic defect in p-type SiC. In addition, we predict the existence of interstitial-related electrically active defects which may be detected by experimental tools.
