The study of the coexistence of low threshold lasing in the strong coupling regime of semiconductor microcavities was presented. The analysis study was conducted in a high-quality microcavity under near-resonant optical pumping. Splitting of a sharp laser mode from the lower-polariton was observed with the increase in the pumping power. Lasing action was produced by low density localized exciton states that were weakly coupled to the cavity mode.
