Evaluation techniques for semiconductor devices are keys for device development with low cost and short time to market. Especially, dopant and depletion layer distribution in devices is a critical electrical property that needs to be evaluated. Super-higher-order nonlinear dielectric microscopy (SHOSNDM) is one of the promising techniques for semiconductor device evaluation. We developed a method for imaging detailed dopant distribution and depletion layers in semiconductor devices using SHO-SNDM. As a demonstration, a cross-section of a SiC power semiconductor device was measured by this method and detailed dopant distribution and depletion layer distributions were imaged.
