The physical working principles of whispering gallery mode semiconductor disk lasers are examined. A new method is proposed for measuring the single-pass gain. The theory of cylindrical waveguides is considered. The spectral characteristics of whispering gallery mode lasers is investigated experimentally in the temperature range 4-300 K. It is shown that lasers of this kind are very promising as potential laser radiation sources operating at room temperature.
