The morphology of p-type implanted 4H-SiC was controlled using a capping layer during post-implantation activation annealing of the dopant. Indeed, the surface roughness of Al-implanted regions strongly depends on the use of the protective capping layer during the annealing. However, while the different morphological conditions do not affect the macroscopical electrical properties of the implanted SiC (such as the sheet resistance), they led to an improvement of the morphology and of the specific contact resistance of Ti/Al Ohmic contacts formed on the implanted regions. These electrical and morphologic improvements were associated with a lowering of Schottky barrier height. Preliminary results showed that the different …
