The relation between unstable periodic orbits and resonator modes in a fully chaotic open-sided two-dimensional laser resonator is theoretically investigated in the short wavelength limit. We derive a periodic-orbit-sum formula for eigenvalues of the resonator modes by applying the semiclassical approximation to the extended Fox-Li mode calculation method. With this formula, we show that the complicated wavelength dependence of the power-coupling coefficients of the fully chaotic quasi-stadium laser resonator can be explained by a few kinds of unstable periodic orbits.
