In this paper we demonstrate the recovery of Ohmic contacts formed on C-face 4H-SiC following high temperature post-processing. After a typical high-kappa dielectric anneal in O-2 for 3 minutes at 650 degrees C, replacing the metallization stack is revealed to significantly reduce the damage produced in the I-V characteristics. Using C-AFM we have also studied the mechanisms responsible for Ohmic contact formation, presenting a possible relationship between changes in the SiC crystal orientation and the establishment of Ohmic behaviour.
