Abstract

For the first time, ion beam induced epitaxial crystallization (IBIEC) has been found in SiC. The effect of 300 keV Si+ irradiation through an amorphous surface layer in single crystalline 6H-SiC at 477+5°C has been investigated by RBS/C and XTEM. A shrinkage of the amorphous layer was found after ion irradiation at this temperature which is caused by both an ion dose independent thermal regrowth of about 20 nm and an additional ion beam induced epitaxial crystallization with a rate of about 1.5 nm/ 1016 cm−2.
