Device ability of SiC-MOSFET's expected from physical data has not been achieved because channel resistance increases by mobility degradation due to Si0$$_{2}$$/SiC interface defects. Although high channel mobility is obtained in the MOSFET's made on a 4H-SiC(000-1)c face compared to them on a 4H-SiC(0001)Si face, reliability of an oxide film is preferential in the MOSFET's on a 4H-SiC(000-1)c face. Conduction band off-set of SiO$$_{2}$$/SiC interface and energy distribution of the interface level density are known to be different between MOSFET's on a 4H-SiC(000-1)c face and a 4H-SiC(0001)Si face. Physical origins for them are not known yet. In order to make clear the reasons for degradation of interface characteristics and reliability in the MOSFET's made on an SiC(000-1)c face, we evaluated chemical bonding states and energy band structures of Si0$$_{2}$$/SiC interfaces formed on an SiC(0001)Si face and an SiC(000-1)c face using synchrotron radiation photoemission spectroscopy.
