Abstract

The high field strength and wide bandgap of semiconducting silicon carbide gives it a very low intrinsic electronic carrier concentration. As a result the carrier generation rate in Sic is fourteen orders of magnitude lower than that in Si. This makes Sic an ideal material for NVRAM (Non-Volatile Random Access Memory) memory cells, Ultra- Violet detector elements, and power handling tran- sistors at both low and high frequencies.
