In this study, we analyze the characteristics of a micro-cavity laser with the size one-order larger than the lasing wavelength by employing the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) methodology. The simulation results have been obtained under the conditions with different materials and structures of the oscillator. It is seen that the power leakage from the side wall depends on the material and structure of a micro-cavity laser system. The wall material of the micro-cavity is assumed to be BK7 glass, silver, and copper, respectively. The results indicate that the side power leakage with the wall material of BK7 glass is much more serious than those with the wall materials of silver and copper. In addition, it is demonstrated that the cavity structure is also a key factor that influences the output features of such a laser.
