The different steps of ZnSe substrate preparation are described. In situ hydrogen plasma cleaning to get rid of contaminations like thermally stable oxides on ZnSe substrate surfaces before growth is the crucial point to fabricate reproducibly pseudomorphic (Mg,Zn) (S,Se) layers. It is found that the crystalline quality of the layers depends strongly on that of the ZnSe substrates itself as well as on the initial growth start conditions. Finally, ZnSe-based laser diodes were grown on insulating and different kinds of conducting ZnSe substrates. They operated at room temperature under pulsed conditions.
