SiC bulk single crystal growth by sublimation was investigated. A new crucible design, double-walled crucible, was proposed, and its effect was confirmed numerically and experimentally. On the point of heat transfer in a growth cavity, double-walled crucible is better than conventional crucible. With a double-walled crucible, temperature of seed and source surfaces could be kept constant with better uniformity than that with a conventional crucible. It was deduced that a crystal growth rate could be kept constant with flat surface. Furthermore, in case of a double walled crucible, crystal enlarged rapidly with less inclusion. As the results, a double-walled crucible is useful to grow high quality SiC single crystal by sublimation.
