Abstract

In this work, we study the effects of NO anneals on the interface of 4H-SiC MOSFETs via spin dependent charge pumping, an electrically detected magnetic resonance technique. We make measurements at high and ultra-low resonance frequencies. Our results indicate that the NO anneals both change the silicon vacancy energy levels as well as induce disorder at the interface. In addition, our results indicate that the changes in energy levels involve N atoms very close to VSi sites.
