Ga-doped 3C-SiC layers have been grown on on-axis 6H-SiC (0001) substrates by the VLS technique and investigated by low temperature photoluminescence (LTPL) measurements. On these Ga-doped samples, all experimental spectra collected at 5K were found dominated by strong N-Ga donor-acceptor pair (DAP) transitions and phonon replicas. As expected, the N-Ga DAP zero-phonon line (ZPL) was located at lower energy (~ 86 meV) below the N-Al one. Fitting the transition energies for the N-Al close DAP lines gave 251 meV for the Al acceptor binding energy in 3C-SiC and, by comparison, 337 meV for the Ga acceptor one.
