4H-SiC structures with both Al+ and C+Al+ implantation have been prepared by multiple energy implantation. They were studied by photoluminescence, optical transmission, micro-Raman scattering and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The damage and amorphization of SiC layer by ion-implantation, and the elimination or suppression of the implantation induced amorphous layer via high temperature annealing are observed. After annealing, the solid-phase recrystallization is confirmed. The advantages of C/Al co-implantation over Al only ion-implantation is identified.
