Structural and electrical properties of beryllium implanted silicon carbide have been investigated by secondary ion mass spectrometry, Rutherford backscattering as well as deep level transient spectroscopy, resistivity and Hall measurements. Strong redistributions of the beryllium profiles have been found after a short post-implantation anneal cycle at temperatures between 1500 °C and 1700 °C. In particular, diffusion towards the surface has been observed which caused severe depletion of beryllium in the surface region. The crystalline state of the implanted material is well recovered already after annealing at 1450 °C. However, four deep levels induced by the implantation process have been detected by deep level transient spectroscopy.
