We report low-temperature (4.2 K) cyclotron resonance measurements on high-mobility, two-dimensional electron gases in modulation-doped ZnSe/Zn1-xCdxSe (x = 0.06, 0.12, and 0.24) single quantum wells, as well as in a modulation-doped ZnTe/CdSe single quantum well. These experiments carried out in magnetic fields ranging up to 17 T yield reliable measurements of the effective mass m* of conduction-band electrons in Zn1-xCdxSe alloys, including the measurement of m* in cubic CdSe.
