III V - II VI narrow junction lasers can be formed using ZnSe, which has a close lattice match to GaAs and can be grown into grooves or tunnels on GaAs. In addition to that property, ZnSe also possesses the following pertinent properties: 1. A lower index of refraction than that of GaAs. 2. A relatively high electrical resistivity in the as-grown state. 3. It is negligibly affected by zinc diffusion from the contiguous GaAs.
