Wide Bandgap II-VI Compounds for Red-Green-Blue LEDs and Other Devices

We have investigated several wide bandgap II-VI materials families that have potential in application for red-green-blue (R-G-B) light emitters.  I will present our results with ZnCdMgSe-based structures grown lattice-matched to InP and with other materials, such as Be- and Te-based II-VI alloys, that may have unique advantages.  I will also present our recent results in non-equilibrium doping techniques for enhanced p-type doping.  Finally, I will discuss preliminary considerations for other device applications.
