We report the molecular beam epitaxial growth of the quaternary (Zn,Mg)(S,Se) compound as well as the incorporation of this quaternary into a pseudomorphic SCH blue-green laser diode configuration. X ray diffraction and TEM imaging indicate that the quaternary (Zn,Mg)(S,Se) can accommodate substantially more strain than the binary ZnSe; pseudomorphic epilayers with thickness of about 2 micrometers could be grown within a strain range of -0.225% (tension) and 0.137% (compression) at room temperature. Room temperature continuous wave operation of diode lasers having the quaternary as cladding layers was achieved with a lifetime of longer than 20 seconds. These index-guided laser diodes, employing the Zn(Se,Te) graded ohmic contact (adopted to contact p-type (Zn,Mg)(S,Se), have provided a significant reduction in lasing threshold voltage to 4.2 V.
