The films were grown by metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). The structural analysis showed epitaxially oriented films over the hexagonal substrates. The electrical characterization of simple devices onto AlGaN/GaN heterostructures enabled to demonstrate a dielectric constant of 11.7 and a reduction of the leakage current in insulated gate structures. On the other hand, epitaxial NiO films grown onto 4H-SiC epilayers exhibited the presence of an interfacial SiO 2 layer and twinned NiO grains, and a lower dielectric constant.
