This work describes the development of a new post-implant crystal recovery technique in 4H-SiC using XeCl (l= 308 nm) multiple laser pulses in the ns regime. Characterization was carried out through micro-Raman spectroscopy, Photoluminescence (PL), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and outcomes were than compared with 1h thermally annealed at 1650-1770-1750 CP implanted samples (source implant) and P and Al implanted samples for 30 minutes at 1650 C (source and body implants). Experimental results demonstrate that laser annealing enables crystal recovery in the energy density range between 0.50 and 0.60 J/cm 2. Unlike the results obtained with thermal annealing where stress up to 172 Mpa and high carbon vacancies (V c) concentration is recorded, laser annealing provides almost stress free samples and much less defective crystal avoiding intra-bandgap carrier recombination …
