Enhanced spontaneous emission has been observed with wavelength-sized monolithic Fabry-Perot cavities containing GaAs quantum wells. With an on-resonance cavity structure, the photoluminescence intensity increases in the cavity axis direction, and the spontaneous emission lifetime is experimentally found to decrease.
