The conditions in which carbon layers are synthesized on the surface of silicon carbide (SiC) wafers by thermal decomposition are studied. The effect of temperature and composition of the gas atmosphere on the structural properties of the layers being synthesized is analyzed. The conditions in which continuous graphite films with both single-crystal and polycrystalline structure can be obtained are determined.
