Abstract Direct femtosecond laser writing has been used to produce localized regions of photo-luminescent emission in 4H- and 6H-silicon carbide (SiC). Arrays of active color centers were fabricated by different pulse laser energies in the sites of square grids at various depths (from surface level to 10 mu m below surface). We optically characterized the fabricated color centers using confocal imaging with 532 and 780 nm excitation, photo-luminescence spectroscopy, and lifetime decay at room temperature. We show that the technique can produce specifically the silicon vacancy color center emitting in the range 850-950 nm and other emitters in the 700 nm. This method can be adopted to engineer color centers in (SiC) at different depths in the material for single-photon generation, sensing, display fabrication, and light emitting diodes.
