New for 2017 — achievement of sub nm roughness in epitaxial SiC morphology

In recent years, improvements in our epitaxial grown silicon carbide on silicon (SiC on Si) films at ANFF-Q have evolved using our EpiFlx large batch production reactor, jointly developed with SPT Microtechnologies USA Inc. We have now achieved sub nm roughness in epitaxial SiC morphology. Many applications require epitaxial SiC on Si with a sub nm … Read more “New for 2017 — achievement of sub nm roughness in epitaxial SiC morphology”
