Silicon carbide (SiC) is a wide-band-gap semiconductor that has attracted extensive investigations for a wide range of device applications. Accurate values of stopping powers in SiC, especially for B, N, and Al ions as dopants and for He ions used in ion-beam analysis applications, are highly desirable. In the present study, the electronic energy loss of these ions in a self-supported SiC film is directly measured in transmission geometry using a time-of-flight detection system over a continuous range of energies. The measured electronic stopping powers are parameterized, for easy implementation in other applications, and compared with the predictions of the stopping and range of ions in matter code. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    We report the results of an ab initio study of N and P dopants in SiC. We find that while N substitutes most favorably at a C lattice site, P does so preferably at a Si site, except in n-doping and Si-rich 3C-SiC. Furthermore, we consider a series of dopant complexes that could form in high-dose...
