A mechanism for obtaining stable travelling waves in the transverse section of a semiconductor laser is presented. This is illustrated with experimental and numerical results utilizing the technique of transverse current profiling. Thus, the underlying physics of current profiling could be extended to the case of transversely coupled lasers to engineer phase locked laser arrays.
