Optical characteristics of a new metastable wide-gap II-VI semiconductor heterostructure ZnTe/MnTe are reported. Single ZnTe/MnTe quantum wells show strong n = 1 exciton resonance manifesting, for example, in pronounced enhancement of the Raman cross-section. Pseudomorphic nature of the structures is inferred from strain induced shifts in the optical phonon spectrum.
