Paper Abstract

An overview of the COIL history and corresponding technical milestones is given and major scientific contributions of laboratories all over the world are discussed, briefly. This paper reviews basic COIL technology for the subsonic and supersonic system including in particular new generator concepts. It highlights important achievements and analyzes the remaining problems which are primarily related to still open fundamental questions in the area of liquid and gas phase kinetics. It also attempts an outlook of the forthcoming technology. Finally, the COIL potential for future applications is addressed with special emphasis on the unique high power, high brightness performance capabilities of this laser.
