Paper Abstract

A rewiew is provided of the state of the art and perspectives of High Power Lasers for industrial materials processing. Special attention is given to the solid state lasers (Nd-YAG) and to the gas lasers (CO2) of industrial interest. Excitation of the active medium and heat removal techniques, time and space control of the emission and beam transport problems are discussed. The expected improvements and future evolution are also out-lined.
