ABSTRACT
Epitaxial films of cubic β-SiC(111) have been grown via chemical vapor deposition at 1683 K on (0001) substrates of hexagonal 6H α-SiC. Optical microscopy of the surface indicated that a decrease in the ratio of the sum of the C and Si source gases to the H2 carrier gas changed the crystallization behavior from polycrystalline to monocrystalline. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy showed almost no line or planar defects at the substrate/film interface and very few defects within the bulk of the film.
