Abstract

The results of the experimental study of a copper bromide vapour laser at high repetition rates of regular pump pulses are presented. A record-high pulse repetition rate of 700 kHz is attained for lasing at self-terminating transitions in copper atoms. To analyse the obtained results, use is made of the data of numerical modelling of the plasma kinetics in the phase of pumping and discharge afterglow.
