The gauge factor, the piezoresistive coefficients in two-terminal and four-terminal resistors, the comparison between single crystalline and nanocrystalline SiC, along with the temperature dependence of the piezoresistive effect in p-type 3C-SiC are also discussed. Silicon carbide (SiC) is an excellent material for electronic devices operating at high temperatures, thanks to its large energy band gap, superior mechanical properties and extreme chemical inertness. Among the numerous poly types of SiC, the cubic single crystal, which is also well known as 3C-SiC, is the most promising platform for microelectromechanical (MEMS) applications, as it can be epitaxially grown on an Si substrate with diameters of up to several hundred millimeters. This feature makes 3C-SiC compatible with the conventional Si-based micro/nano processing and also cuts down the cost of SiC wafers. The investigation into the piezoresistive effect in 3CSiC is of significant interest for the development of mechanical transducers such as pressure sensors and strain sensors used for controlling combustion and deep well drilling. Although a number of studies have focused on the piezoresistive effect in n-type 3C-SiC, 4H-SiC and 6H-SiC, comparatively little attention has been paid to piezoresistance in p-type 3C-SiC. In addition, the book investigates the piezoresistive effect of top-down fabricated SiC nanowires, revealing a high degree of sensitivity in nanowires employing an innovative nano strain-amplifier. The large gauge factors of the p-type 3C-SiC at both room temperature and high temperatures found here indicate that this poly type could be suitable for the development of mechanical sensing devices operating in harsh environments with high temperatures.iv>Summary: Introduction and Literature Review -- Theory of the Piezoresistive Effect in p-type 3C-Sic -- 3C-Sic Film Growth and Sample Preparation -- Characterization of the Piezoresistive Effect in p-type Single Crystalline 3C-Sic -- The Piezoresistive Effect in p-type Nanocrystalline Sic -- The Piezoresistive Effect of Top Down p-type 3C-Sic Nanowires -- Conclusion and Future WorkPPN: PPN: 1658327063Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-CMS
