Abstract

A comparative study of the morphology of 3C-SiC films prepared with different C:Si ratios is presented. The silane precursor controls the growth rate at all values of C:Si ratio but combined of observations using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) indicates that the C:Si ratio is critical in determining the grain size and at values of C:Si close to 1 texturing and faceting become evident. Makyoh Topography reveals various surface defects, a slight mesoscale roughness and bending of the epiwafers.
