Abstract: The impact of radiation source dependence on the device performance degradation of 4H-SiC MESFETs (Metal Schottky Field Effect Transistors), which have been irradiated at room temperature with 2 MeV electrons and 20 MeV protons, is studied. No performance degradation is observed by 1 × 10 15 e/cm 2 and 5 × 10 11 p/cm 2 , while a slight increase of the linear drain current together with a decrease of the threshold voltage are noticed above higher fluence. The damage coefficient for protons is about three order…
