Abstract [en]

Epitaxially grown 4H-SiC structures with several heavily Al doped layers were used. The samples were annealed in Ar atmosphere in a RF-heated furnace between 1500 and 2900 degreesC for 0.5 to 3h. Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) was used to measure the aluminum concentration versus;depth as well as the lateral distribution (ion images). Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was employed to study the crystallinity and determine phase composition after heat treatment. A solubility limit of 2x10(20) Al/cm(3) at 2000 degreesC is extracted. Ion images of the lateral Al distribution reveal a pronounced dependence on the Al content. Precipitate formation occurs after heat treatment at 1700 - 2000 degreesC when the Al concentration exceeds 2x10(20) cm(-3) and energy-filtered TEM (EFTEM) shows that the precipitates contain Al.
