Electrical characterization of amorphous silicon carbide thin films deposited via polymeric source chemical vapor deposition
Polymeric source chemical vapor deposition (PS-CVD) was used to synthesize amorphous silicon carbide (a-SiC) thin films. The PS-CVD process was conducted at temperatures between 750 and 1000 °C. The substrates used were silicon single crystal wafers of p-type and n-type, and thermally grown silicon dioxide substrates. The chemical and electrical properties of the films were studied by various techniques, including Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, elastic recoil detection (ERD), and capacitance–voltage technique. A correlation was observed between the average concentration of oxygen in the films and the deposition temperature, linking a low oxygen concentration to a high deposition temperature. However, the concentration of oxygen in the films deposited at the same temperature is independent of the substrate. The thin films deposited at low temperature showed insulating behaviour, while the semiconducting behaviour is obtained at high deposition temperatures. Ohmic contacts were obtained on the deposited semiconductor thin film by evaporating nickel contacts, followed by annealing of the sample at 800 °C for 2 min.
