Paper Abstract

In the 25 years since its invention the first generation COIL technology has matured to an extent which is demonstrated by large scale high power laser projects. It is the intention of this paper to address the worldwide effort in COIL technology with special emphasis on new developments and alternative approaches. Singlet oxygen generator concepts and iodine mixing techniques are reviewed and evaluated as well as different optical resonator designs. A road map for future research and development work will address the issues of power scaling, pumping and ejector requirements, and beam quality. Finally, prospects for an all electric COIL technology will be given.
