This document has been peer-reviewed.
Epitaxial graphene films examined were formed on the Si-face of semi-insulating 4H-SiC substrates by a high temperature sublimation process. A high-k gate stack on the epitaxial graphene was realized by inserting a fully oxidized nanometer thin aluminum film as a seeding layer, followed by an atomic-layer deposition process. The electrical properties of epitaxial graphene films are retained after gate stack formation without significant degradation. At low temperatures, the quantum-Hall effect in Hall resistance is observed along with pronounced Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations in diagonal magnetoresistance of gated epitaxial graphene on SiC (0001).
