4H-SiC(0001), (000-1), and (11-20) have been directly oxidized by N2O at 1300°C, and the MOS interfaces have been characterized. The interface state density has been significantly reduced by N2O oxidation on any face, compared to conventional wet O2 oxidation at 1150°C. Planar n-channel MOSFETs fabricated on lightly-doped 4H-SiC(0001), (000-1) and (11-20) faces have shown an effective channel mobility of 26, 43, and 78 cm2/Vs, respectively. The mobility decreased with increasing the doping concentration of p-body. SIMS analyses have revealed a clear pile-up of nitrogen atoms near the MOS interface. The thickness of interfacial SiCxOy layer can be decreased by utilizing N2O oxidation. The crystal face dependence of interface structure is discussed.
