SiC Polytype Stability Influenced by Ge Impurities
In this paper we present a methodology to affect the stability of polytypes formation during heteroepitaxial growth of SiC on Si. This methodology is based on the investigation of growth related parameters. These parameters involve substrate temperature, effect of impurities on surface diffusion, strain, and super-saturation conditions as solved by using SSMBE growth (Solid Source molecular beam epitaxy).
