Laser diode operation has been obtained from (Zn,Cd)Se/ZnSe and (Zn,Cd)Se/Zn(S,Se) quantum well structures in the blue and the green. The devices, prepared on p- and n-type (In,Ga)As or GaAs buffer layers for lattice matching purposes to control the defect density, have been operated at near-room-temperature conditions and briefly at room temperature with uncoated end facets. Quasi-continuous wave operation has been obtained at T=77 K.
