We report room temperature operation of a II-VI p-i-n quantum confined Stark effect modulator using a ZnSe-Zn0.8Cd0.2Se multiple quantum well structure within a ZdSe p-n junction. A n-type ZnSe layer was used as a novel contact to the p-type ZnSe. Results are given for photovoltage spectroscopy, absorption, and differential absorption as a function of the applied electric field.
