Reduced electrical resistivity of reaction-sintered SiC by nitrogen doping

A post heat treatment of reaction-sintered SiC at 1700 degrees C in nitrogen atmosphere significantly reduced electrical resistivity. A trace of insulating Si3N4 phase was detected via nitrogen heat treatment in high-resolution transmission electron microscopy observation; however, based on x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, the evidence of nitrogen doping into SiC lattice has been claimed as the mechanism to the decreased resistivity. The increase of the total volume of SiC was apparent in x-ray diffraction during the nitrogen heat treatment, which was interpreted to stem from the growth of the nitrogen-doped intergranular SiC particles and surface doping of the primary SiC to reduce the contact resistance between the primary SiC particles.
