We present measurements of the spatial intensity distribution of localized modes in a two-dimensional open microwave cavity randomly filled with cylindrical dielectric scatterers. The robustness of these modes with respect to a modification of the boundaries of the scattering region is successfully established. From a comparison with numerically calculated modes, we can extract precise values of the localization length which are in agreement with the measured spectral widths. These results constitute unambiguous signatures of the existence of strongly localized electromagnetic modes in two-dimensional open random media.
