The limaçon-shaped semiconductor microcavity is a ray-chaotic cavity sustaining low-loss modes with mostly unidirectional emission patterns. Investigating these modes systematically, we show that the modes correspond to ray description collectively rather than individually. In addition, we present experimental data on multimode lasing emission patterns that show high unidirectionality and closely agree with the ray description. The origin of this agreement is well explained by the collective correspondence mechanism.
