Abstract

Silicon carbide films are grown epitaxially on crystalline silicon substrates heated above 1000 °C, by laser ablation of pure carbon targets to thicknesses between 300 and 400 nm. These films grow on top of the silicon substrate from the carbon in the ablation plume and from the silicon of the substrate. By using a method of alternate ablation of a pure carbon and a pure silicon target, similar epitaxial films can be grown to thicknesses in excess of 1 μm with part of the silicon being supplied by the ablation plume of the silicon target.
