Bow-tie modes were proposed in a grooved rectangular resonator and their lasing characteristics were investigated in semiconductor microcavities. The observed spacing between two adjacent lasing peaks from the grooved cavity was reduced compared to that of 4-bounce whispering gallery modes (WGMs) from the same-sized simple rectangular cavity due to increased round-trip path length of the bow-tie modes. The lasing spectra of bow-tie modes obtained from two adjacent corners showed highly correlated patterns while those of 4-bounce WGMs did not.
