Paper Abstract

In order to contribute to the development of a reliable criterion for beam quality characterization, a review of the commonly used criteria is done. Several meaningful experimental works using oscillator-amplifier configurations for high power industrial CO2 lasers, are analyzed. The influence of some forms of inhomogeneity on the beam quality, in an oscillator-amplifier configuration, has been also investigated through numerical methods.
