In P Ga In As P square-resonator microlasers with an output waveguide connected to the midpoint of one side of the square are fabricated by standard photolithography and inductively-coupled-plasma etching technique. For a 20 - μ m -side square microlaser with a 2 - μ m -wide output waveguide, cw threshold current is 11 mA at room temperature, and the highest mode Q factor is 1.0 × 10 4 measured from the mode linewidth at the injection current of 10 mA . Multimode oscillation is observed with the lasing mode wavelength 1546 nm and the side-mode suppression ratio of 20 dB at the injection current of 15 mA .
