Single laser elements will always have an upper limit of power. Progress in technology continuously demands higher power. This could be satisfied by developing a parallel but generic technology of laser beam combiner. Current state of technology is summarized from this "generic" point of view, categorizing the specific approaches that exploit the various parameters (or properties) of light beam and/or laser cavities.
