Advantages of coaxial radio-frequency excited discharges for the design of slow-flow and fast- flow high power CO2 lasers are discussed. The crucial point of the development of such laser systems is the feasibility of resonators with high extraction efficiency and high focusability. Azimuthally unstable resonators prove to be suitable for these annular gain media. A theoretical description of such resonators is compared with experimental results with both slow-flow and fast-flow discharges.
