ZnSe has been heteroepitaxially deposited on GaAs substrates by vapor transport using hydrogen in an open tube reactor. A quasi-equilibrium model explains quantitatively the source transport reaction over the temperature range studied. It is shown that the substrate surface processes limit the growth rate in the deposition region. The activation energy for the surface reaction is 26 kcal/mole. Capacitance-voltage measurements on ZnSe/GaAs heterojunctions indicated that the layers are homogenously doped and an abrupt heterojunction is observed.
