The influence of many-body, carrier-carrier, and carrier-photon interaction on the dynamic response of microcavity semiconductor lasers is investigated. It is shown how the switch-on dynamics is governed by the spectrally resolved gain-loss compensation. Transient instabilities and relaxation oscillations are discussed and their suppression through spontaneous emission enhancement is demonstrated.
