The cover picture refers to this issue's Feature Article starting on page 255. Kathrin Sebald, Carsten Kruse, and Jan Wiersig (University of Bremen, Germany) review the optical properties of II–VI-based monolithic microcavities with quantum wells or quantum dots embedded.
The scanning electron micrograph on the left depicts the VCSEL pillar structure. The middle column shows the measured two-dimensional spatial distribution of the pillar's photoluminescence emission with increasing optical mode order from top to bottom. And the right column displays the calculated transverse electric-field patterns of the cavity modes. (© 2009 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
