The strength of single- and polycrystalline ZnSe was investigated at elevated temperatures by means of compressive deformation. The yield stress of ZnSe was rather low around 13 MPa, easily deformed even at low temperatures 150 °C. The activation energy for dislocation motion in ZnSe was estimated to be 0.5-0.7 eV. The intrinsic stacking fault energy was measured 7-9 mJ/m 2 from the dissociation width ∼20 nm of dislocations into partials by weak-beam transmission electron microscopy. The recombination-enhanced dislocation motion was detected through the change of dislocation morphologies induced by the electron irradiation during weak-beam observation.
