Abstract
A novel system for growth of bulk semi-insulating silicon carbide (SI-SiC) is proposed. In this growth system a novel technique is used to reduce the impurity levels in the grown crystal to levels much lower than what is currently available commerciallyor in the laboratories.. The growth system also replaces the traditional SiC powder source with a higher purity source material. The proposed system is to be built during this program and used to produce SI-SiC boules. The grown crystals will undergoextensive materials characterization.
