Excitons and charged excitons (trions) are investigated in ZnSe-based quantum well structures with (Zn, Be, Mg)Se and (Zn, Mg)(S, Se) barriers by means of magneto-optical spectroscopy. Binding energies of negatively (X-) and positively (X+) charged excitons are measured as functions of quantum well width, and free carrier density and in external magnetic fields up to 47 T. The binding energy of X- shows a strong increase from 1.4 to 8.9 meV with decreasing quantum well width from 190 to 29 Å. The binding energies of X+ are about 25% smaller than the X- binding energy in the same structures. The magnetic field behavior of X- and X+ binding energies differ qualitatively. With growing magnetic field strength, X- increases its binding energy by 35-150%, while for X+ it decreases by 25%. Zeeman spin splittings and oscillator strengths of excitons and trions are measured and discussed.
