We have studied the growth of zinc selenide layers on flat and shaped indium phosphide surfaces. The growth rate of zinc selenide has been shown to depend on substrate orientation. It has been shown that the present results can be useful in designing mesa stripe structures for quantum electronic instruments. We have fabricated mesa stripe laser diodes operating on the absorption band of methane and suitable for producing fiber-optic signal transmission systems.
