Abstract
Chemical oxygen iodine laser (COIL) is the only laser expected to be applied for thick plate cutting, for instance, by high laser power over 5 kW transferred to the processing fields by the optical silica fiber. As a result of the first stage of industrial COIL development, a 1 kW subsonic COIL was delivered as a commercial processing device first in the world in 1992. The supersonic COIL development was carried out at the second stage and the output power of over 5 kW was obtained in 1995. Using this high power beam, superiority of the COIL as an industrial laser was studied by processing metals.
