"CVD Growth of SiC on Novel Si Substrates" by Rachael L. …
Silicon Carbide has been a semiconductor material of interest as a high power and temperature replacement for Silicon (Si) in harsh environments due to the higher thermal conductivity and chemical stability of SiC. The cost, however, to produce this material is quite high. There are also defects in the substrate material (SiC) that penetrate into the active devices layers which are known

Large area and structured epitaxial graphene produced …
Defects in UHV sublimed silicon carbide can be traced to the relatively low growth temperatures and the high graphitization rates in the out of equilibrium UHV sublimation process. Whereas increased growth temperature will anneal vacancies and grain boundaries, the UHV growth method still leads to unacceptable high sublimation rates.
Mixing carbon and silicon atoms to form two-dimensional (2D) silicon carbide (Si x C 1–x) sheets is promising to overcome this issue. Using first-principles calculations coined with the cluster expansion method, we perform a comprehensive study on the thermodynamic stability and electronic properties of 2D Si x C 1– x monolayers with 0 ≤ x ≤ 1.

Silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor technology has been advancing rapidly, but there are numerous crystal growth problems that need to be solved before SiC can reach its full potential. Among these problems is a need for an improvement in the surface morphology of epitaxial films that are grown to produce device structures.
Growth of graphene on silicon carbide is promising for large-scale device-ready production. A significant parameter characterizing the quality of the grown material is the nuer of layers. Here we report a simple, handy and affordable optical approach for precise nuer-of-layers determination of graphene based on the reflected power of a laser beam.

Investigation of hydrogen plasma treatment for reducing …
12/2/2014· We investigate the effects of hydrogen plasma treatment (HPT) on the properties of silicon quantum dot superlattice films. Hydrogen introduced in the films efficiently passivates silicon and carbon dangling bonds at a treatment temperature of approximately 400°C. The total dangling bond density decreases from 1.1 × 1019 cm-3 to 3.7 × 1017 cm-3, which is comparable to the defect
