We have found that individual presolar silicon carbide (SiC) dust grains from supernovae show a positive correlation between 49Ti and 28Si excesses, which is attributed to the radioactive decay of the short-lived ( t ½ = 330 days) 49V to 49Ti in the inner highly 28Si-rich Si/S zone. The 49V-49Ti chronometer shows that these supernova SiC dust grains formed at least 2 years after their parent

Wide Band Gap Semiconductors (WBGS), LED, Power & Radio Frequency (RF) Devices Wide-bandgap semiconductors are materials that permit the operation of devices at much higher voltages, frequencies and temperatures than conventional semiconductors such as silicon and gallium arsenide.
Silicon carbide may be a more effective product in the short term, as it is easier to manufacture larger, more uniform wafers of SiC than gallium nitride. Over time, given its higher electron mobility, gallium nitride will find its place in small, high-frequency products.

In this method, a silicon carbide (SiC) substrate is heated to temperatures of 1360 C, at which point it begins to decompose and form graphene layers. The researchers found that the first of these layers, normally called the buffer layer, forms a band gap greater
The band gap is further increased upon self-energy corrections. The mechanical properties are investigated using the strain energy calculations. The effect of various vacancy defects, adatoms, and substitutional impurities on electronic and magnetic properties in 2D SiC monolayer and in its armchair nanoribbons is also investigated.

The 4H SiC is the polytype of choice for power, because it has the largest band gap of common types, a relatively high mobility, and a small mobility anisotropy. The c-plane is polar (i.e., has a surface with a “carbon face” or a “silicon face,” while the (1120) face is nonpolar, which is important due to the fact that SiC chemical vapor deposition (CVD) epi is sensitive to polarity
