Some Recent Results on the 3C-SiC Structural Defects
This work presents some recent results on the 3C-SiC structural defects, studied by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). The samples studied were grown in several laboratories, using different methods. Commonly used methods for growth are Sublimation Epitaxy (SE), Physical Vapour Transport (PVT), Continuous Feed Physical Vapour Transport (CF-PVT), Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD), and Liquid Phase Epitaxy (LPE). In all these methods, for both bulk and epitaxial layer growth, substrates from other polytypes are exploited like the common hexagonal polytypes 4H- and 6H-SiC or 3C-SiC seeds both in (111) and (100) orientation.
