Abstract

The optimal pressures of the active H2, HBr impurities and the working substance (copper bromide) for an effective operation of the CuBr laser are determined experimentally. It is shown that to achieve the highest output laser parameters by increasing the voltage across the gas-discharge tube and the pump pulse repetition rate, it is also necessary to increase the amount of the impurity introduced. At the same time, the optimal pressure of copper bromide decreases with increasing the pulse repetition rate.
