Presents a theoretical prediction stating that thin quantum-well superlattices or spike superlattices of gallium arsenide in zinc selenide will produce band gaps in the yellow-green, and that (gallium arsenide)[sub1-x](zinc selenide)[subx] will lead to green and blue gaps. Sample preparation; Information on the energy band lineups for the samples; Significance of the theoretical prediction.
