Technology Description

Silicon Carbide (SiC) is a semiconductor that, due to its superior electronic properties, could replace silicon-based devices in the enormous market of high voltage, high speed power electronics. NREL has developed Hot-Filament Chemical Vapor Deposition technology that, when optimized, enables growth of electronic grade SiC from gas phase precursors, at lower costs than current CVD techniques used in industry.
