This study compares p-MOS capacitors fabricated on N+ implanted and on virgin 4H-SiC. The former sample have N at the SiO2/SiC interface, the latter have not. To investigate the presence of deep and shallow hole traps at the SiO2/SiC interface, high frequency and quasi-static capacitance voltage measurements under dark have been compared for bias sweeping from accumulation to depletion and from depletion to accumulation, the latter after white light illumination. The presence of N has an effect on the density of the shallow donor like traps but none effect on the deep ones. The positive charge trapped in the oxide and/or at the oxide interface after equivalent tunneling hole injection have been compared and are equivalent. Time dependent dielectric breakdown tests have been compared too. The oxide grown on N+implanted SiC broken at lower electric field.
