Optical characteristics of a new, weakly strained wide-gap II-VI quantum well have been studied with emphasis on the confined exciton states. Strong luminescence efficiency in the blue is observed with spectra showing only weak alloy disorder effects. Magneto-optical studies yield a measurement for the band offsets in a model which properly includes exciton effects.
