[en] We present results from laser cooling experiments at ESR, GSI Darmstadt and CSRe, IMP Lanzhou. We show that with a cw laser system it is possible to cool ion beams with large initial momentum spread and that laser cooling can overcome intra-beam scattering, regardless of the initial ion beam current. We furthermore discuss first laser cooling tests with a pulsed laser system and present an outlook on how to optimize laser cooling for heavy ion beams at highly-relativistic energies, focusing not only on laser technologies but also on optical beam diagnostics.
