Abstract
A review is presented of the most significant methods and features of RF-excited and DC-excited high power CO2 lasers. Special attention is given to the symmetry properties of the gain and index of refraction distributions in the active medium and related effects on the laser beam quality. The evolution and the expected trends in this field are also briefly outlined.
