Optimization of Bipolar SiC-Diodes by Analysis of Avalanche Breakdown Performance
In this work we discuss measurements of the breakdown voltage of diodes with non-punch-through (NPT)- and punch-through (PT)-designs. From the experimental results we deduce the temperature dependent Fulop constants of the effective ionization rate. The data of this work agree very well with ionization rates for electrons and holes determined recently.
