Article Preview

High-speed solution growth using Si-Cr based melt has been performed on on-axis 4H-SiC(0001) at a high temperature of about 2000°C. The maximum growth rate for one-hour growth reaches to 1120 m/h, while the typical growth rate of growth for 2h is about 500 m/h. A large crystal that is about 25 mm in diameter and 1650 m in thickness can be obtained by growth for 5h. The crystal quality is confirmed to be homogeneous by X-ray diffraction and X-ray topography, because FWHM is less than 30 arcsec. Etch pit density of the threading dislocations in the grown crystal is 103-104 cm-2, and that of basal plane dislocation is 2×102-3×103 cm-2. Resistivity of the crystals grown by the solution growth is comparable to those of crystals grown by physical vapor transport technique.
