Abstract: In this letter, we analyze by means of first-principles electronic structure calculations the diffusion of B impurities in 3C-SiC. We find, through molecular dynamics, that substitutional B at a Si lattice site is readily displaced by a nearby Si interstitial by the process known as a kick-out mechanism, in agreement with recent experimental results. This is in contrast to the situation in Si, where B has recently been shown to diffuse via an interstitialcy mechanism.
