This paper studies excitons and bi-excitons in ternary (Zn,Cd)Se/ZnSe quantum wells, widely used as active region in blue-green laser diodes. Localization on alloy disorder characteristically influences the electronic structure of these excitations and their dynamical behavior. The low-temperature lasing is controlled by bi-excitons. Gain as large as 2 (DOT) 104 cm-1 and optical threshold densities as low as 2 kW cm-2 are observed. Due to their localization-enhanced binding energy, bi-exciton signatures are present up to 150 K.
