Reverse Electrical Characteristics of 4H-SiC JBS Diodes Fabricated on In-House Substrate with Low Threading Dislocation Density
The impacts of threading dislocations, surface defects, donor concentration, and schottky Schottky barrier height on the reverse IV characteristic of silicon carbide (SiC) junction barrier schottky Schottky (JBS) diodes were investigated. The 100 A JBS diodes were fabricated on 4H-SiC 3-inch N-type wafers with two types of threading dislocation density. The typical densities are were 0.2×104 and 3.8×104 cm-2, respectively. The improvement of vIt was found that variations in the leakage current and the high yield of large area JBS diodes werecould be were obtained improved by using a wafer with a low threading dislocation density. In the range of low leakage current, the investigation shows showed a correlation between leakage current and threading dislocation density.
