II-VI low-dimensional structures promise the advent of a new era of solid state optoelectronics in the visible spectral region. We review the growth and optical characterisation of binary strained layer superlattices of the Zn(Cd)S(Se) family with particular emphasis on growth by metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy, and characterisation using steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence and cathodoluminescence.
