In this paper the electrical and structural characteristics of n-MOSFETs fabricated on 4H SiC with a process based on nitrogen (N) implantation in the channel region before the growth of the gate oxide are reported for low (5x1018 cm-3) and high (6x1019 cm-3) N concentration at the SiO2/SiC interface. The electron mobility and the free carrier concentration in the MOSFET channel were evaluated by Hall effect measurement. The MOSFETs with the higher N concentration had the best electrical characteristics in terms of threshold voltage and field effect mobility, in spite of a lowering of the electron mobility in the channel. The latter is a negative drawback of the fabrication process that probably can be ascribed to an incomplete recovery of the implantation damage or to a high density of interstitial N atoms present in the channel region. In fact, the MOSFETs with the superior electrical performances were fabricated with …
