Abstract: High-quality lattice-matched quantum well (QW) structures of ZnCdSe/ ZnCdMgSe were grown on InP substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. Emission energies from 2.306 to 2.960 eV were measured by low-temperature photoluminescence for samples with QW thicknesses between 5 and 80 A. Bandgap measurements indicate that these structures could be used in entirely lattice- matched blue, green, and yellow diode laser structures. Experimental measurements indicated that these structures have very little strain; hence, these materials could possibly be less prone to degradation than the current II- VI blue-green lasers grown on GaAs substrates.
