Laser diode action in the blue-green has been observed from (Zn,Cd)Se quantum wells within ZnSe/Zn(S,Se) p-n heterojunctions up to 250 K. Operation is reported for two different configurations for which the GaAs substrate serves either as the n- or p-type injecting contact. In pulsed operation, output powers exceeding 0.6 W have been measured in devices prepared on both n-type and p-type GaAs epitaxial buffer layers and substrates.
