ABSTRACT
Analyzes the growth of 3 carbon-silicon carbide (3C-SiC) epitaxial films on off-axis silicon substrates by reactive magnetron sputtering. Comparison of the film quality to chemical vapor deposited 3C-SiC; Lattice mismatch and difference in thermal contraction between SiC and Si; Structural defects in SiC film; Details of low-energy ion-surface interactions.

    Previously reported chemical vapor deposition of 3C-SiC on 6H-SiC has resulted in films with a high density of double positioning boundaries (DPBs). We have found that growth on as-grown faces of 6H-SiC crystals can yield films that are largely free of DPBs. The (111) 3C-SiC films, up to 12...
