Structural study of CdSe/BeTe superlattices (SLs) grown by molecular beam epitaxy on GaAs substrate was performed by using double and triple crystal x-ray diffractometry. The period of the studied structures was about 5 nm, while the thickness of thin CdSe insertions varied from 0.4 to 1.5 monolayer. It is shown that new Be-Se bonds arise at the BeTe-CdSe interfaces in addition to the Be-Se bonds expected at the CdSe-BeTe interfaces. From the analysis of the diffraction curves of 002-reflection the complex composition of interfaces and thin insertions has been determined and contribution of all types of bonds in each SL period calculated. The diffraction curves of 004-reflection were used for the specification of the fine structure of the interfaces.
