Wafer bonding of SiC and GaN may prove important in the formation of high power heterojunction devices. Results of bonding SiC (C or Si surface) onto GaN (Ga surface) are presented. The samples were n-type 6H SiC and epitaxial n-type 2H(wurzite) GaN grown on SiC. The results demonstrate bonding for both possibilities, but the bonding of the C surface SiC to Ga surface GaN is more readily accomplished. A lower resistance was found for the C-face SiC/Ga-face GaN. The results indicate that the polarity of the interface is important for bonding of these materials.
