In this article an overview is given about the special properties of the new blue and green semiconductor lasers, with emphasis on those basic processes that power the stimulated emission in these compact devices. Of special interest are the strong electron-hole Coulomb correlations which can be spectroscopically identified as unique features in quantum wells of wide band gap semiconductors.
