Fundamental Study of Sublimation-Recrystallization Phenomena in PVT-Growth of SiC Single Crystals


Article Preview

Sublimation-recrystallization processes occurring during PVT are investigated from the viewpoint of quasi-equilibrium phase transitions of SiC. In addition to the elemental reaction processes of PVT, other phenomena such as silicon droplet formation and in-situ etching are also discussed based upon the Si-C binary phase diagram, and possible mechanisms are proposed.
