We have obtained optically pumped laser action in the form (Zn,Cd)Se/ZnSe single quantum well structures prepared by molecular beam epitaxy. Near-room-temperature lasing under pulsed excitation has been achieved and high repetition quasi-continuous mode operation at temperatures so far up to 120 K. Rapid gain switching has generated pulses of approximate 20 ps in duration.
