Optical Properties and Optoelectronic Applications of II–VI Semiconductor Heterostructures

Semiconductor heterostructures of II-VI compounds offer a wide range of properties which can be

exploited for fundamental studies and for device applications. We will review recent studies addressing

these issues, emphasizing ZnSe-based structures for blue-green light emitting devices. Other systems,

such as type-II and diluted magnetic semiconductor heterostructures and narrow-gap type-III

heterostructures, will be discussed.
