We have obtained ZnSe single crystals by vertical Bridgman method. The surface was examined using scanning electron microscope (SEM). As usual crystals exhibited twins, which were observed on the (110) surface. On as-grown and n-type samples we observed long (of the order of millimetres) linear structures parallel to the (111) plane which correspond to the twin plane. Our observations and measurements enabled us to estimate the electronic potential as being of the order of a few volts and extending less than 1 μm in the direction perpendicular to the twin planes.
