Quasiparticle band structures of six II-VI compounds (ZnS, ZnSe, ZnTe, CdS, CdSe, and CdTe in the zinc-blende and wurtzite structures) are calculated using the GW approximation. Results for band structures, calculated using the ab initio pseudopotential method within the local-density approximation (LDA), are given along with the energies of the quasiparticle excitations at symmetry points. Comparisons are made with measured values and trends in the GW corrections to the LDA band structures are examined.
