4 The Chimney Reactor An elegant new reactor concept for the growth of SiC epitaxial layers was introduced by Ellison et al. [34, 53] and is called the chimney reactor. This technique is similar to the HTCVD technique in that it is a vertical system and the material transport is achieved by allowing large clusters of Si to form. This is achieved by reducing the carrier flow, which thereby increases the partial pressure of the precursors. Hydrogen is used as the carrier gas but, again, only very small flow rates are required.

This lies within the sweet spot for SiC unipolar devices. ) Thus, if we begin substituting the old-fashioned Si devices with fresh new ultra-fast SiC unipolar devices, more than 75% of the power will go through an SiC device. This will be a major deal for the power industry on account of the superior performance of the SiC devices. If we assume that we improve the efficiency of the Si circuits with another 5%, approximately $50 billion will be saved in power consumption annually in the United States as a result.

The gases used are mainly silane, ethylene, and a helium carrier. The carrier flow is very low. 9. Silane and ethylene are present at very high concentrations so that homogeneous nucleation dominates the process. As the gases enter into the hot part of the injector, the silane will decompose and form small Si liquid droplets or solid microcrystals, depending on the temperature. The ethylene will also take part in the reaction, forming microparticles of SixCy. It has been noted [39] that even a small addition of hydrocarbons converts the Si droplets to stable particles of SixCy (or nonstoichiometric SiC).
