We illustrate the study of extreme events in the spatial transverse section of the electric field emitted by a broadarea semiconductor laser with saturable absorber. Spatiotemporal maxima of the field intensity in the threedimensional space (x, y, t) are identified as events for the statistical analysis. We clearly determine the regions of the parameter space where extreme events are most likely to occur. Furthermore the connection between extreme events and stationary and self-pulsing cavity solitons, occurring in the same system, is investigated.
