A Designed Experiment Approach to Improvement and Understanding of the SiC Epitaxial Growth Process
A series of designed experiments have been conducted over a period of years in a multiwafer, planetary rotation, epitaxial reactor to quantify the effects of various epitaxial growth process parameters on the resulting SiC epitaxial layers. This paper summarizes the results obtained through statistically designed experiments varying process parameters and their resultant effect on the layer thickness, carrier concentration and the variability of these parameters wafer-to-wafer, and within a wafer.
