A systematic study is presented of the heteroepitaxial growth of B12As2 on m-plane 15R-SiC. In contrast to previous studies of B12As2 on other substrates, including (100) Si, (110) Si, (111) Si and (0001) 6H-SiC, single crystalline and untwinned B12As2 was achieved on m-plane 15R-SiC. Observations of IBA on m-plane (1100)15R-SiC by synchrotron white beam x-ray topography (SWBXT) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) confirm the good quality of the films on the 15R-SiC substrates. The growth mechanism of IBA on m-plane 15R-SiC is discussed. This work demonstrates that m-plane 15R-SiC is potentially a good substrate choice to grow high quality B12As2 epilayers.
