GaN metal oxide semiconductor diodes were demonstrated utilizing Sc2O3 as the gate oxide. Sc2O3 was grown at 100°C on MOCVD grown n-GaN layers in a molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system, using a scandium elemental source and an Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) oxygen plasma. Ar/Cl2 based discharges was used to remove Sc2O3, in order to expose the underlying n-GaN for ohmic metal deposition in an Inductively Coupled Plasma system. Electron beam deposited Ti/Al/Pt/Au and Pt/Au were utilized as ohmic and gate metallizations, respectively. An interface trap density of 5 × 1011 eV-1cm-2was obtained with the Terman method. Conductance-voltage measurements were also used to estimate the interface trap density and a slightly higher number was obtained as compared to the Terman method. Results of capacitance measurements at elevated temperature (up to 300°C) indicated the presence of deep states near the interface.
