Interface reaction between Ni thin film and bulk SiC during heat treatment was investigated by MeV ion backscattering spectrometry using resonance scattering of helium-carbon, x-ray diffraction, and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). Polycrystalline nickel-silicide, Ni2Si, was formed by heat treatment at 600 °C in forming gas. Carbon compounds were not detected in the reaction products. Carbon was distributed uniformly with a concentration of about 25 at. % in the reacted film, and the C KLL line shape of AES in the reaction products as similar to that of elementary carbon.
