An effect of the nitrogen concentration on the concentrations of deep-level defects in bulk 6H-SiC single crystals is investigated. Six electron traps labeled as T1A, T1B, T2, T3, T4 and T5 with activation energies of 0.34, 0.40, 0.64, 0.67, 0.69, and 1.53 eV, respectively, were revealed. The traps T1A (0.34 eV) and T1B (0.40 eV), observed in the samples with the nitrogen concentration ranging from ∼2×1017 to 5×1017 cm−3, are attributed to complexes formed by carbon vacancies located at various lattice sites and carbon antisites. The concentrations of traps T2 (0.64 eV) and T3 (0.67 eV) have been found to rise from ∼5×1015 to ∼1×1017 cm−3 with increasing the nitrogen concentration from ∼2×1017 to ∼2.0×1018 cm−3. These traps are assigned to complexes involving silicon vacancies occupying hexagonal and quasi-cubic sites, respectively, and nitrogen atoms. The trap T4 (0.69 eV) concentration also substantially rises with increasing the nitrogen concentration and it is likely to be related to complexes formed by carbon antisites and nitrogen atoms. The midgap trap T5 (1.53 eV) is presumably associated with vanadium contamination. The presented results show that doping with nitrogen involves a significant change in the defect structure of 6H-SiC single crystals.
