We have fabricated CdMgTe/CdMnTe based pillar microcavities with diameters down to 2 μm by optical lithography and reactive ion etching. Three-dimensional optical confinement is demonstrated by the occurrence of higher lateral modes. In the high excitation regime, the emission line-width in pillar microcavities is found to be significantly reduced as compared to planar microcavities.
