Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 200)


The potential device interest in the wide band gap II–VI materials, based principally on compounds of the group II elements (Zn, Cd) with the group VI elements (O, S, Se, Te) has been recognised for a long time.1,2 These materials are known to have band gaps which are compatible with emission in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum and to exhibit non-linear optical effects.3 These properties are currently being investigated in applications such as light emitting devices, optical wave guides and optical switches.
