Dependence of a CuBr laser output on the pressure of H2- and HBr- additives into active medium has been investigated. Optimal H2 and HBr densities for maximal laser output have been determined when pressure of Ne buffer gas was varied in the range from 10 up to 100 torr. Laser output has been studied with variation of the active compound (CuBr) pressure in the range from 0.1 up to 0.6 torr for gas discharge tubes of different volumes. The optimal additive pressure has been shown to linearly depend on a voltage across gas discharge tube at high pressure of the buffer gas. The optimal density of copper bromide decreases while pulse repetition rate increases up to 100 kHz. It is assumed that accumulating of Cu-atoms takes place in the active medium due to decreasing of interpulse period.
