    We generate stable mode-locking of different lateral modes in broad-area semiconductor lasers (BALs) by local injection of short optical pulses repeated at subharmonics of the lateral mode separation. The locking results in a persistent, periodic spatiotemporal dynamics consisting of a laterally...
