Rigorous safety procedures and adequate ventilation are required when using dopant hydrides, especially when using concentrations in the supply cylinder greater than about 100 ppm. Resistivity levels above about 10 ohm-cm are considered very lightly doped because the intended dopant level is low enough to be influenced by the typical background dopant levels in the reactor. The undoped or intrinsic dopant level in a commercial epitaxy reactor is a function of the purity of the deposition chemicals, the integrity of the SIC coating on the graphite wafer carrier, the level of other unwanted contamination, and the dopant history of the heated parts within the system.
