ABSTRACT
Schottky barrier contacts have been made on n-type 3C-SiC epitaxially grown by chemical vapor deposition, and their characteristics were studied by the capacitance and photoresponse measurements. By evaporating Au onto chemically etched surfaces of 3C-SiC, good quality Schottky barrier junctions have been obtained. The barrier height determined by the capacitance measurements is 1.15 (±0.15) eV, while the height by the photoresponse measurements is 1.11 (±0.03) eV. These values are about a half of the energy band gap Eg at room temperature.
