Enhancement of local electric conductivities induced by femtosecond laser modification in silicon carbide was studied. Current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of the laser-modified regions were measured between the ion-implanted metal contacts. Interestingly, the resistance sharply decreased in the fluence range from 5.0 to 6.7 J/ cm2. The resistance at the irradiation fluence of 53 J/ cm2 decreased by more than six orders of magnitude compared with the nonirradiated one. From the I-V characteristics and the scanning electron microscope observations, we conclude that the phase separation associate with the formation of classical laser induced periodic structure causes the drastic increase in electric conductivity.
