We report the growth of ZnSe nanowires and nanoneedles using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). Different growth regimes were found, depending on growth temperature and the Zn–Se flux ratio. By employing a combined MBE growth of nanowires and nanoneedles without any postprocessing of the sample, we achieved an efficient suppression of stacking fault defects. This is confirmed by transmission electron microscopy and by photoluminescence studies.
