Silicon carbide is a hard covalently bonded material predominantly produced by the carbothermal reduction of silica (typically using the Acheson process). Several commercial grades of silicon carbide exist such as nitride bonded, sintered, reaction bonded, SiAlON bonded and clay bonded.
Abstract: Stable, high temperature electrical contacts to silicon carbide formed using a unique silicide formation process that employs a sacial silicon layer between the silicon carbide and the contacting metal, which forms a metal silicide interlayer providing the resulting contact with low specific contact resistance and high electrical and structural stability.
Silicon carbide (SiC) represents a class of wide-bandgap semiconductors existing in a large variety of crystal structures known as polytypes, which are a one dimensional disorder allowing for the
For comparison, Table 2.3 also includes comparable properties of silicon. To varying degrees the major SiC polytypes exhibit advantages and disadvantages in basic material properties compared to silicon. Three key egories where SiC enjoys inherent advantages
Silicon Carbide – SiC Silicon carbide was discovered in 1893 as an industrial abrasive for grinding wheels and automotive brakes. About midway through the 20 th century, SiC wafer uses grew to include in LED technology. Since then, it has expanded into numerous
silicon and carbon atoms in a hexagonal crystal struc-ture, there are two principal kinds of polytypes of silicon carbide: 6H-SiC and 4H-SiC. Before the intro-duction of 4H-SiC, the dominant polytype was 6H-SiC. Both types have been used for some years for
SiC (silicon carbide) is a compound semiconductor composed of silicon and carbide. SiC provides a nuer of advantages over silicon, including 10x the breakdown electric field strength, 3x the band gap, and enabling a wider range of p- and n-type control required for device construction.

For the controlled growth of hexagonal or cubic silicon carbide (SiC) polytypes, an in situ surface analysis technique is needed which is sensitive to the crystal structure of thin films whose thicknesses are in the range of a few nanometers. Diffraction effects of
Many structures or polytypes have been identified for Silicon Carbide. These polytypes have different stacking arrangements for the atoms of silicon and carbon in the compound. One of the simplest structures is the diamond structure, which is known as b -SiC.
