Nondestructive Control of the Surface, Layers, and Charge Carrier Concentration on SiC Substrates and Structures

  • 3 Accesses


Silicon carbide substrates and epitaxial structures are investigated by nondestructive contactless methods. Parameters of the disrupted surface layer and roughnesses are determined using ellipsometry and atomic force microscopy. The free charge carrier concentration is determined by IR spectroscopy. The thicknesses in the multilayer epitaxial structure on SiC are determined using IR spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
