Large-Area Homoepitaxial Growth of Low-Doped Thick Epilayers for Power Devices with VBR > 4 kV
In this paper we present results on the growth of low-doped thick epitaxial layers on 4° off-oriented 4H-SiC using a commercially available hot-wall multi-wafer CVD system. For the first time we show results of a low-doped full-loaded 73” run on 4° off-oriented substrates with a layer thickness of more than 70 µm. The target doping concentration of 1.2×1015 cm-3 is suitable for blocking voltages > 6 kV. Results on doping, thickness and wafer-to-wafer homogeneities are shown. The surface quality of the grown layers was characterized by AFM. The density of different types of dislocations was determined by Defect Selective Etching.
