We report the observation of periodic compositional modulation in ZnSe 1-xTe x alloys grown by molecular beam epitaxy on vicinal (100) GaAs substrates. The period is highly regular, with typical values between 18 and 32 Å, and is long range in character. X-ray diffraction indicates that the composition varies approximately sinusoidally, resulting in superlattices that are expected to have unique physical properties.
