Paper Abstract

Prolonged exposure of chemical vapor deposited, polycrystalline ZnSe to high ac voltages in a 1 molal NaCl solution induces severe mechanical damage. Exposure produces defects that originate at the surface and grow intergranularly into the bulk with a bush-like morphology. Single crystal KRS-5 exposed to the same environmental conditions does not display the same mechanical damage. Possible causes for the degradation are discussed.
