Two-dimensional angular correlation of annihilation radiation (2D-ACAR) and coincidence Doppler broadening (CDB) of annihilation radiation measurements have been performed on electron-irradiated n-type 3C SiC in which isolated silicon vacancies are responsible for positron trapping. After irradiation, the intensity of CDB spectrum increased and decreased in low and high momentum regions, respectively. These fetures were explained by the theoretical calculation considering silicon vacancies. The center region of 2D-ACAR spectra became isotropic after iradiation, while the overall anisotropies extending within the Jones zone were conserved suggesting that isolated silicon vacancies have the tetrahedral symmetry as expected from the previous electron spin resonance study.
