The capacitance-voltage measurements were applied for characterization of the semiconductor/dielectric interface of GaN MOS capacitors with SiO2 and HfO2/SiO2 gate stacks. From the Terman method low density of interface traps (Dit ≈ 1011 eV-1 cm-2) at SiO2/GaN interface was calculated for as-deposited samples. Samples with HfO2/SiO2 gate stacks have higher density of interface traps as well as higher density of mobile charge and effective charge in the dielectric layers. High quality of SiO2/GaN interface shows applicability of SiO2 as a gate dielectric in GaN MOSFET transistors.
