Sputter deposited indium tin oxide layers have been used as the top contact for blue LEDs and diode lasers in (Zn,Cd)Se/Zn(S,Se) quantum well heterostructures. The contact resistance to n-Zn(S,Se) is comparable to that with indium or gold. The optically transparent contacts have been utilized, as an example, in the fabrication of a numeric display device and to show that LED emission is of excitonic origin in these type I quantum wells.
