Paper Abstract

The status of ZnSe-based blue-green diode lasers evolved extremely rapidly from 'non- existent' in 1990 to 'room temperature continuous-wave operation' in 1993. Such rapid progress can be attributed, in the author's opinion, to four critical materials-related breakthroughs reported over an exciting two-year time frame. The nature of these four breakthroughs will be reviewed in this paper as will their significance with regard to their impact on the performance of blue-green diode lasers.
