Single-crystalline 4H-SiC micro cantilevers with a high quality factor


We fabricated single-crystalline 4H-SiC cantilevers by electrochemical etching.
Very sharp resonance was observed for the fabricated 4H-SiC cantilevers.
The maximum quality factor of 4H-SiC cantilevers is 230,000.
The quality factor is 10 times higher than that of 3C-SiC cantilevers.


Single-crystalline 4H-SiC micro cantilevers were fabricated by doping-type selective electrochemical etching of 4H-SiC. Using this method, n-type 4H-SiC cantilevers were fabricated on a p-type 4H-SiC substrate, and resonance characteristics of the fabricated 4H-SiC cantilevers were investigated under a vacuum condition. The resonant frequencies agreed very well with the results of numerical simulations. The maximum quality factor in first-mode resonance of the 4H-SiC cantilevers was 230,000. This is 10 times higher than the quality factor of conventional 3C-SiC cantilevers fabricated on an Si substrate.

  1. Under-eye concealers that aren't too thick but still cover your darkness.
    These powerful face products will keep the skin at it's best and ready for the products that actually do work, whether or not they are labeled high definition.
