Excess carrier lifetime in p-type 4H-SiC epilayers with and without low-energy electron irradiation

Kato, Masashi*; Matsushita, Yoshinori*; Ichimura, Masaya*; Hatayama, Tomoaki*; Oshima, Takeshi

Excess carrier lifetimes in as-grown and low-energy electron irradiated p-type 4H-SiC epitaxial layers were investigated using the microwave photoconductivity decay method. The carrier lifetime increased with increasing excitation density in the epilayers. This results suggests that the dominant recombination center in the epilayers has larger capture cross section for electrons than capture cross section for holes. The carrier lifetime in the epilayer decreased by the low-energy electron irradiation decreases. The decrease in lifetime in the electron irradiated samples showed recovery after annealing at 1000 $$^{circ}$$C.
