The p-n structures was formed by the implantation of Al ions into 6H-SiC n-type films and the thermal annealing. An energy of ions was in the range of 40–90 KeV, an annealing temperature -1700–2100K. We investigated the influence of implantation conditions over the defects electroluminescence of the obtained structures.
After fabricating contacts and mesa-structures with areas 500–500μm our devices showed under the current of 20 mW:
- integral light power 20μW,
- λmax=535 nm, δλmax=80nm.
For the first time was fabricated the green electroluminescence source on SiC with the value of efficiency approximated to one of the A3B5 structures, and after encapsulating it will be possible to obtain LEDs with an integral light power up to 80–100μW.
