Abstract

Nitrogen is the common n-type dopant of the various polytypes of silicon carbide. The nitrogen levels in 4H-SiC (at EC-53 meV and EC-100 meV) and in 6H-SiC (at EC-89 meV, EC- 100 meV, and EC-125 meV) have been studied in detail by temperature dependent Hall effect measurements, electron spin resonance (ESR), and thermal admittance spectroscopy. Until now, such detailed studies of the nitrogen levels in 15R-SiC have not been carried out.

Lely-grown 15R samples were used in these studies. The net carrier concentrations (ND-NA), determined by room temperature CV measurements, ranged from 1 × 1018 to 3 × 1018 cm−3. The nitrogen levels in 15R-SiC were studied using thermal admittance spectroscopy. Optical admittance spectroscopy (OAdS) was used to study the deeper defects in this polytype. It was found that optical transitions to the conduction band were inhibited in the heavily doped material.
