Single-phase ZnCdO alloys with a band gap extending from the violet to yellow spectral range are fabricated by molecular beam epitaxy using extremely low growth temperatures in conjunction with O-rich growth conditions. The Cd concentration can be systematically adjusted via the Cd ∕ Zn beam pressure ratio. Despite growth temperatures as low as 150 ° C , layer-by-layer growth is accomplished allowing for the preparation of Zn Cd O ∕ Zn O quantum well structures. Both epilayers and quantum wells exhibit strong band-gap-related emission at room temperature in the whole composition range.
