Electrically Detected Magnetic Resonance Studies of Processing Variations in 4H SiC Based MOSFETs
We apply electrically detected magnetic resonance (EDMR) to variously processed 4H SiC MOSFETs from two vendors. Although, the EDMR line shapes observed are nearly the same for vendor 1 devices subjected to a nitric oxide (NO) anneal and devices without it, the relationship between EDMR and gate voltage differs greatly between these samples. Furthermore, the EDMR response versus gate bias varies dramatically. EDMR results from a third device produced by a second vendor are very different from those provided by the first vendor. This result implies that significantly different defect populations are present in devices fabricated by different vendors.
