Abstract [en]

Degradation-free ultrahigh-voltage (>10 kV) PiN diodes using on-axis 4H-SiC with low forward voltage drop (VF = 3.3 V at 100 A/cm2) and low differential on-resistance (RON = 3.4 m.cm2) are fabricated, measured, and analyzed by device simulation. The devices show stable on-state characteristics over a broad temperature range up to 300 °C. They show no breakdown up to 10 kV, i.e., the highest blocking capability for 4H-SiC devices using on-axis to date. The minority carrier lifetime (τP) is measured after epitaxial growth by time resolved photoluminescence (TRPL) technique at room temperature. The τP is measured again after device fabrication by open circuit voltage decay (OCVD) up to 500 K.
