    In this letter, we analyze by means of first-principles electronic structure calculations the diffusion of B impurities in 3C-SiC. We find, through molecular dynamics, that substitutional B at a Si lattice site is readily displaced by a nearby Si interstitial by the process known as a kick-out...

    The electronic structure and absorption spectrum of hydrogenated silicon carbide nanocrystals (SiC NCs) have been determined by first principles calculations. We show that the reconstructed surface can significantly change not just the onset of absorption but the shape of the spectrum at higher...

    Off-axis electron holography has been used to map the electrostatic potential distribution of threading screw dislocations in differently n-doped 4H-SiC epitaxial layers. Observed phase contrast indicated the presence of a negatively charged dislocation core. Comparison between experimental and...

    Using hybrid density functional calculations, we investigate the electronic properties of zigzag SiC nanoribbons (ZSiCNRs) with different hydrogen-terminations. We find that the asymmetric hydrogen-terminations can break the magnetic degeneracy and favor ferromagnetic state in the ZSiCNRs. The...

    Electronic structures of SiC nanoribbons have been studied by spin-polarized first-principles calculations. The armchair nanoribbons are nonmagnetic semiconductors, while the zigzag nanoribbons are magnetic metals. The spin polarization in the zigzag SiC nanoribbons is originated from the...
