Abstract [en]

The effect of gamma-ray and neutron irradiation on recombination current, injection electroluminescense and the value of the lifetime of nonequilibrium carriers for 4H-SiC pn structures was investigated. The irradiation was carried out with gamma-ray (dose 5x10(6) rad) and 1 MeV neutrons in the doses range from 1.2x10(14) cm(-2) to 6.24x10(14) cm(-2). Neutron irradiation with a dose 1.2x10(14) cm(-2) increased the recombination current, decreased the lifetime for deep-level recombination in the space charge region and decreased the intensity of the edge injection electroluminescense (hv(max) ≈ 3.16 eV) by 1.5-2 orders of magnitude; the neutron irradiation with high dose (6.24x10(14) cm(-2)) resulted in increase of the recombination current up to 2 orders of magnitude and decrease of lifetime at least up to 2 orders of magnitude. Gamma-ray irradiation and annealing at temperatures in the range 350-650 K left the recombination current and lifetime practically unchanged.
