Atomistic model of the 4H(0001)SiC-SiO2 interface: Structural and electronic properties
- Through the sequential use of classical molecular dynamics and first-principles relaxation methods, we generate an abrupt model interface for the 4H(0001)SiC-SiO2 interface showing regular structural parameters without any coordination defect. The valence and conduction band offsets are calculated and found to be in fair agreement with the experimental values. Si-2p core-level shifts are calculated for this model interface and compared with available experimental data. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
