Photo-assisted p-type doping of ZnSe has been performed for the first time using active-nitrogen doping and UV laser illumination of the growth surface. Above band gap irradiation during growth results in a decrease in Se coverage, as is the case for n-type and undoped material, and this decrease in Se coverage allows higher nitrogen incorporation rates, although changes in (NA - ND) are relatively small at 280°C. From photoluminescence data we have identified the existence of a deep donor responsible for compensation in nitrogen doped ZnSe. © 1993.
