The negative-index property of double-negative metamaterials and the effective matching property of single-negative metamaterials are used to achieve ultrathin laser cavities. Open and partially closed cavities are considered. Resonant enhancement of the output fields is demonstrated in both cases with a variety of metamaterial combinations.
