Semiconductor microdisk laser linewidths are measured for cavity volumes near a cubic wavelength. The linewidths remain near the subthreshold values for pump powers well above threshold in agreement with a microscopic theory that includes the coupled dynamics of the optical emission and the nonequilibrium electron-hole gas in the cavity.
