Single crystal cubic silicon carbide ( 3C-SiC ) has been deposited on Si(100) by atmospheric CVD at 1350°C using Si2(CH3)6. The 3C-SiC epilayers were characterized by XRD, Raman scattering and photoluminescence (PL). The 3C-SiC distinct TO near 796 cm−1 and LO near 973 cm−1 were recorded by Raman measurement. The PL spectra of SiC films at 11K included the nitrogen-bound exciton (N-BE) lines, the ‘defect-related’ W band near 2.15eV, and 2.13eV peak corresponding to D-A pair recombination as well as the ‘divacancy-related’ D 1 peak at 1.97eV. The thickness dependences of Raman and PL measurement were made and it was observed that tensile stress and strain in films decrease with increasing film thickness. Electrical properties of the films were measured by making schottky diodes and using Van der Pauw method. Above 300K, the electron mobility changed as μH ∼ T−1.45 ∼ −1.56 and the highest mobility was about 400 cm2V−1s−1 at room temperature. In 3C-SiC the scattering processes are affected prominently by acoustic scattering in this temperature range.
