By analyzing the zero-field-splitting parameters and of Cr2+ (3d4) ion located at tetrahedral site in ZnSe crystal, the local structure distortion and absorption spectra around Cr2+ in ZnSe: Cr2+ system have been calculated on the basis of the complete energy matrix for the d4 configuration within the strong-filed-representation. It is shown that there exists an expansion distortion in the local lattice structure when Cr2+ ion is doped into ZnSe crystal. From our calculations, the distortion parameters and are determined. a D 0.20A R  3.4  
