Abstract

A nonstationary kinetic model of the active medium of a copper-vapor laser (λ = 510.6 and 578.2 nm) with hydrogen bromide (HBr) and bromine (Br 2) impurities is constructed. A theoretical analysis of the existing concepts regarding the increase in the lasing parameters of a copper-vapor laser with hydrogen bromide impurities in the active medium is presented. The experimentally observed improvement of the lasing characteristics cannot be interpreted on the basis of only the kinetic processes realized in the gaseous active medium (recently, such an approach was successfully realized in analyzing Cu-Ne-H2, Cu-Ne-H2-HCl, and Cu-Ne-Cs active media of kinetically enhanced copper-vapor lasers).
