Abstract: Only a few methods exist to observe, identify, and localize defects in SiC devices. These defects are a major limit for device performance and reliability. Presented is an improved experimental setup to investigate deep level defects using electrically detected magnetic resonance (EDMR). The method applied in this study exploits the simultaneous in-situ electron spin resonance (ESR) measurement of a standard sample (DPPH) to calibrate the magnetic field. The functionality is shown by comparing the data of an ion implanted SiC diode to results from a recent study . The in-situ B-field calibration is found to increase the accuracy of EDMR measurements by a factor of 2.5.

Abstract: Anneals in nitrogen (N) containing atmosphere have been proven as efficient means of improving the channel mobility of SiC MOSFETs. It has been demonstrated that simultaneously the density of interface traps is reduced. However, this process is not yet fully understood. In this study we show a comparison of MOSFETs annealed in different atmospheres and compare their electrically detected magnetic resonance (EDMR) spectra with electrical parameters. We find hints for the N incorporation not only passivating but also creating or transforming defects.

Abstract: Protons with energies of 1 MeV and 2.5 MeV were implanted into a p-doped silicon wafer and then the wafer was annealed at 350 °C for one hour. This resulted in two n-doped layers in the otherwise p-doped sample. The carrier concentration was measured using spreading resistance profiling while the positions of the four pn-junctions were measured using electron beam induced current measurements. The carrier concentration is not limited by the available hydrogen but by the concentration of suitable radiation induced defects.
