Pham, V. H.; 永江 勇二; 倉田 正輝; 古本 健一郎*; 佐藤 寿樹*; 石橋 良*; 山下 真一郎

Proceedings of International Nuclear Fuel Cycle Conference / Light Water Reactor Fuel Performance Conference (Global/Top Fuel 2019) (USB Flash Drive), p.670 - 674, 2019/09

Silicon carbide (SiC) has recently attracted much attention as a potential material for accident tolerant fuel cladding. To investigate the performance of SiC in severe accident conditions, study of steam oxidation at high temperatures is necessary. However, the study focusing on steam oxidation of SiC at temperatures above 1600$$^{circ}$$C is still certainly limited due to lack of test facilities. With the extreme oxidation/corrosion environment in steam at high temperatures, current refractory materials such as alumina and zirconia would not survive during the tests. Application of laser heating technique could be a great solution for this problem. Using laser heating technique, we can localize the heat and focus them on the test sample only. In this study, we developed a laser heating facility to investigate high-temperature oxidation of SiC in steam at temperature range of 1400-1800$$^{circ}$$C for 1-7 h. The oxidation kinetics is then being studied based on the weight gain and observation on cross-sectioned surface of tested sample using field emission scanning electron microscope. Off-gas measurement of hydrogen (H$$_{2}$$) and carbon monoxide (CO) generated during the test is also being conducted via a sensor gas chromatography. Current results showed that the SiC sample experienced a mass loss process which obeyed paralinear laws. Parabolic oxidation rate constant and linear volatilization rate constant of the process were calculated from the mass change of the samples. The apparent activation energy of the parabolic oxidation process was calculated to be 85 kJ.mol$$^{-1}$$. The data of the study also indicated that the mass change of SiC under the investigated conditions reached to its steady stage where hydrogen generation became stable. Above 1800$$^{circ}$$C, a unique bubble formation on sample surface was recorded.

Creation and characterisation of single photon emitters near the surface of 4H- and 6H-silicon carbide bulk substrates and 3C-SiC epitaxially grown on silicon substrates were investigated. These single photon emitters can be created and stabilized by thermal annealing in an oxygen atmosphere at temperatures above 550 $$^{circ}$$C. Hydrofluoric acid (HF) treatment is shown to effectively annihilate the emission from defects and to restore an optically clean surface. However, the emission from the defects can be obtained after re-oxidation above 550 $$^{circ}$$C. By measuring using standard confocal microscopy techniques, the excited state lifetimes for the emitters are found to be in the nanosecond regime in all three polytypes, and the emission dipoles are aligned with the lattice.

Journal of Asian Ceramic Societies (Internet), 3(4), p.402 - 406, 2015/12

Ceramic yield, density, volume change and pore size distribution were measured for radiation- and thermally cured (poly carbo silan) PCS powder when they were pyrolyzed in the temperature ranges between 673 and 973 K. Higher ceramic yield was obtained for radiation-cured powder due to smaller amount of evolved gas. Temperature dependence of volume change and the total pore volume show the formation and disappearance of pores in the powders were determined by the volume shrinkage and evolution of decomposed gases. Volume shrinkage narrowed the pore size distribution for radiation-cured powder. For thermally cured powder, the narrowing of size distribution was disturbed by aggregated pores. Smaller amount of evolved gas from radiation-cured powder relative to thermally cured powder prevented the aggregation of pores and provided the narrow size distribution.

Proceedings of 11th International Workshop on Radiation Effects on Semiconductor Devices for Space Applications (RASEDA-11) (Internet), p.176 - 179, 2015/11

Quantum centers in silicon carbide (SiC) have already transcended their former reputation as mere performance-hampering defects. Especially the silicon vacancies, but also other point defects offer a variety of quantum applications, completing and complementing the successful NV centers in diamond. We aim to provide an overview over the research activities on quantum centers in silicon carbide, from fundamental knowledge on the 3/2 spin multiplicity, over microwave emission and single photon sources, to axis-aware magnetic field sensing and temperature sensing. Finally, we discussed creating tailored defects in SiC using different radiation parameters.

In order to develop semiconductor devices with MGy radiation resistivity, we are developing power metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect-transistors (MOSFETs) based on silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductors. The $$gamma$$-ray irradiation responses of power SiC-MOSFETs were studied under various irradiation temperatures and humidity with various gate-bias conditions. Making comparisons between these responses, the optimum device operating condition and a better device structure were derived and MGy resistivity was achieved. Besides, $$gamma$$-ray irradiation tests for a motor-driver circuits consisting of SiC-MOSFETs were carried out, and as a result, their continuous operation up to 2 MGy was confirmed.

Two kinds of Si-O-C(-H) ceramics particles having intrinsic photoluminescence (PL) spectra were prepared from silicone resin microspheres by heat treatment in a hydrogen atmosphere at 800 or 1100$$^{circ}$$C. The obtained particles were painted on a Si substrate using a binder, and ion-beam-luminescence spectra were observed under proton beam irradiation with an acceleration energy in the ranges of 1-3 MeV. Observed spectra had peaks at wavelength of 520-540 nm. These peak wavelengths were larger than those observed under UV light irradiation. The luminescence of H$$_{2}$$ 1100 (sample decarbonized at 1100$$^{circ}$$C) was bright, and that of H$$_{2}$$ 800 (sample decarbonized at 800$$^{circ}$$C) was faint. However, the intensity of luminescence decreased rapidly at an early stage of the beam irradiation. In air, a sharp luminescence band with a peak at 300 nm appeared together with the main emission with a peak in the range of 520-540 nm. The existence of the sharp band at 300 nm was apparent in the H$$_{2}$$ 800 spectra, whereas it appeared as a minor peak in the H$$_{2}$$ 1100 spectra in air.

Carbon vacancy - silicon vacancy pair (V$$_{C}$$-V$$_{Si}$$) in silicon carbide (SiC) is regarded as a promising candidate for a qubit for quantum computing since V$$_{C}$$-V$$_{Si}$$ is thought to have electronic states with sharp optical and spin transitions. However, single spin operation using V$$_{C}$$-V$$_{Si}$$ has not yet been succeeded although it was revealed that V$$_{C}$$-V$$_{Si}$$ shows the characteristics as a single photon source (SPS). In this study, we studied spin properties of V$$_{C}$$-V$$_{Si}$$ created in SiC by 2 MeV-electron irradiation. First, we found V$$_{C}$$-V$$_{Si}$$ in SiC using a confocal microscope (CFM) and measured their optical detected magnet resonance (ODMR) at 20 K. Then, their spin coherence was measured from the standard two-pulse Hahn-echo sequence using ODMR. As a result, the spin coherence time exceeding 1 ms was obtained.

Single silicon vacancy (V$$_{Si}$$) in silicon carbide (SiC) was studied from the point of view of single photon source for quantum computing. The V$$_{Si}$$ centers were created in high purity semi-insulating hexagonal (4H)-SiC by 2 MeV electron irradiation with fluences up to 5$$times$$10$$^{15}$$ /cm$$^{2}$$. No subsequent annealing was carried out. A couple of solid immersion lens (SIL) with 20 $$mu$$m diameter were created on samples by ion milling using 40 keV Ga focused ion beam. A typical home-built confocal setup was used after optimizing for emission in the wavelength range around 900 nm. As a result, optically detected electron spin resonance (ODMR) for V$$_{Si}$$ was observed at room temperature (RT). Using ODMR, Rabi oscillations were also observed, and the Rabi frequency increased with increasing applied-magnetic field. In addition, spin relaxation time T$$_{1}$$ and T$$_{2}$$ were detected to be 500 $$mu$$s and 160 $$mu$$s, respectively.

ACS Nano, 8(8), p.7938 - 7947, 2014/08

Single Photon Sources (SPSs) in cubic (3C) Silicon Carbide (SiC) Nano Particles (NPs) were investigated. As a result, photo luminescence (PL) with broad emission at wavelength ranges between 600 and 800 nm was observed from 3C-SiC NPs at room temperature. The second order photon auto-correlation measurements revealed that defect with the PL characteristic is SPSs. The intensity and stability of the PL increased when samples were irradiated with electrons and subsequently annealed at 500 $$^{circ}$$C. From PL measurements at low temperature and theoretical analysis using spin-polarized density functional theory, the defect can be identified as carbon-antisite carbon-vacancy pair (C$$_{Si}$$V$$_{C}$$).

Radiation effects in silicon carbide power MOSFETs caused by heavy ion and proton irradiation were investigated. In the case of ions with high LET, permanent damage (increase in both drain and gate leakage current with increasing LET) was observed and the behavior is similar to the permanent damage observed for SiC Schottky Barrier diodes in our previous study. In the case of ions with low LET, including protons, Single Event Burnouts (SEBs) were observed suddenly although there was no increase in leakage current just before SEBs. The behavior has not been observed for Si devices and thus, the behavior is unique for SiC devices.

Deep levels in p-type hexagonal (4H) silicon carbide (SiC) epilayers irradiated with and without electrons at 160 keV and subsequent annealing at 1000 $$^{circ}$$C were investigated. Current deep level transient spectroscopy (I-DLTS) was applied to investigate deep levels. As a result, Deep levels with activation energies less than 0.35 eV which are located near the valence band were detected. Also, two deep levels (AP1 and AP2) existed in all samples. Other deep levels appeared after the electron irradiation. Since electrons with an energy of 160 keV can knock-on only carbon atoms from the lattice site of SiC, it was concluded that the deep levels observed after irradiation were related to carbon vacancy V$$_{C}$$.

Ultra-pure n-type (8$$times$$10$$^{13}$$ cm$$^{-3}$$), 99 $$mu$$m thick epitaxial layers of hexagonal (4H) silicon carbide (SiC) were irradiated with electrons either at 170 keV with a fluence of 5$$times$$10$$^{16}$$ cm$$^{-2}$$ or at 1 MeV with a fluence of 1$$times$$10$$^{15}$$ cm$$^{-2}$$ in various geometries. Low temperature photoluminescence (LTPL) spectra and microwave photoconductance ($$mu$$PCD) lifetime measurements were carried out for all samples before and after annealing in argon in free standing mode or on a POCO carbon (Poco Graphite, Inc.) platform, every 50 $$^{circ}$$C from 1100 $$^{circ}$$C to 1500 $$^{circ}$$C. However, no improvement in carrier lifetime was observed although previous studies reported that carbon diffused into SiC during high temperature treatment improves carrier lifetime. The result obtained in this study suggests that simple carbon diffusion model cannot be applied and more study is required to understand the injection of carbon interstitials into the SiC lattice.

Photolytic hydrogen generation using sunlight is regarded as energy production technology for the next generation. One of the key of issues for this technology is a selection of materials for the photolysis. Silicon carbide (SiC) is expected as one of the candidate materials for this application. In this study, we measured carrier lifetimes in SiC by the microwave photoconductivity decay ($$mu$$PCD) method. In order to control carrier lifetime in SiC, some samples were irradiated with 160 keV-electrons with fluences between 1$$times$$10$$^{16}$$ and 1$$times$$10$$^{17}$$ /cm$$^{2}$$. The values of carrier lifetime in SiC were compared to photocurrents in electrolytes which directly relate to the conversion efficiency of photolytic hydrogen generation. As a result, photocurrents depend on the sum of the depletion layer width and the diffusion length which was estimated from carrier lifetimes.

Materials Science Forum, 778-780, p.277 - 280, 2014/02

Annealing behavior of the carrier lifetime and the deep levels in electron irradiated n-type and semi-insulating hexagonal (4H) silicon carbide (SiC) was studied. As a result of photo induced current transient spectroscopy (PICTS) measurements, two peaks were observed for each sample. The height of those peaks depended on annealing temperature. Comparing the annealing behavior of the peak height with temperature dependence of concentrations of various defects reported previously, we speculated that the observed peaks originate from either divacancy of silicon vacancy and carbon vacancy (V$$_{Si}$$V$$_{C}$$) or pair of carbon antisite and carbon vacancy (C$$_{Si}$$V$$_{C}$$).
