Stacking Faults Defects on 3C-SiC Homo-Epitaxial Films
Stacking Faults (SFs) are the main defect of 3C-SiC material and in this work a detailed study of this typology of defect is presented. We studied the behavior of SFs with High Resolution XRD and STEM analysis. The homo-epitaxial growth was proposed as a solution for the reduction of SFs density in 3C-SiC material and the influence of the growth condition on the SFs density was studied. The knowledge of the mechanism of SFs reduction is crucial for the development of a high quality material for devices fabrication.
