The optical mode structure of a cylindrical microcavity has been investigated using a transfer matrix approach. We derive exact algebraic equations from which the frequencies of the optical eigenmodes of the two polarizations can be obtained, as well as approximate explicit algebraic expressions for those frequencies.
