Silicon carbide (SiC) is regarded as a promising candidate for electronic devices requiring high radiation tolerance (rad-hard devices). Some results indicate that SiC has superior radiation tolerance from the point of view of total ionizing dose effects (TIDs). For the development of rad-hard SiC devices, it is necessary to understand the response of their performance when dense charge is generated in them by an incident ion, resulting in single event effects (SEEs). Therefore, we have measured the bias dependence of the collected charge distribution induced by heavy ions in 4H-SiC-schottky barrier diodes (SBDs) fabricated in thick epi-layer to reveal SEE mechanisms. As a result, anomalous collected charge peaks (2nd peaks) induced by the heavy ions were observed for the first time. The new process of the SEB was observed in the case of incident ions on thick epi-layer of SiC-SBDs.
