The lasing on scar modes in fully chaotic microcavities was discussed. The scar wave functions in a fully chaotic cavity was found to be obtained numerically by an extended Fox-Li method. The laser on scar modes was found to be observed in a semiconductor microcavity with a selective excitation of different scars controlled by corresponding shape of electrodes for current injection.
