Extremely long ZnCdSe quantum wires (QWR's) are naturally formed on cleavage-induced GaAs (110) surfaces by depositing simply one ZnCdSe alloy layer. The wires are parallel to the [1̄10] direction and extend to millimeter order in length. Surface observations and optical studies demonstrate the formation of QWR's. Large piezo-electric field is observed in the QWR's. This work provides a novel approach to self organized QWR's.
