In this work, we confirm and extend the results of a previous study where a variable range hopping transport through localized impurity states has been found to dominate the electrical transport properties of 3× 10 20 cm-3 and 5× 10 20 cm-3 Al+ implanted 4H-SiC layers after 1950-2000 C post implantation annealing. In this study, samples with longer annealing times have been taken into account. The temperature dependence of these sample conductivity follows a variable range hopping law, consistent with a nearly two-dimensional hopping transport of non-interacting carriers that in the highest doped samples, persists up to around room temperature. This result indicates that the hole transport becomes strongly anisotropic on increasing the doping level. At the origin of this unusual electrical behavior, may be the presence of basal plane stacking faults, actually observed by transmission electron microscopy in one …
