New kinds of semiconductor microcavity lasers are being created by modem semiconductor technologies like molecular beam epitaxy and electron beam lithography. These new microeavities exploit 3-dimensional architectures possible with epitaxial layering and surface patterning. The physical properties of these microcavities are intimately related to the geometry imposed on the semiconductor materials. Among these microcavities are surface-emitting structures which have many useful properties for
