Modelling of effective minority carrier lifetimes in 4H-SiC n-type epilayers: Poster presented at International Conference on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials, ICSCRM 2015, Giardini Naxos, Italy, October, 4th - 9th, 2015


We present an extended model for the simulation of the effective minority carrier lifetime in 4H-SiC epiwafers after optical excitation. This multilayer model uses measured values (doping profile, point defect concentration, capture cross sections for electrons and epilayer thickness) as input parameters. The bulk lifetime and the diffusion constant are calculated from the actual time dependent excess carrier profiles, resulting in more realistic transients having different decay regimes than in other models. This enables a better understanding of optical lifetime measurements
