An intersubband transition (ISB-T) down to 1.57 μm is realized in (CdS/ZnSe)/BeTe super-lattices for the first time. We studied the dependence of properties of super-lattices on the ZnSe interlayer by using in situ reflection of high energy electron diffraction, high-resolution X-ray diffraction, ISB-T, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. It is crucial to improve the growth mode, the structural and optical properties by inserting ZnSe interlayer between BeTe and CdS layers. © 2005 American Institute of Physics
