A spatiotemporal kinetics of the active medium of a copper vapor brightness amplifier is described that allows gain characteristics to be investigated during the pump pulse. Model calculations show that changing the discharge parameters allows the radial gain profiles to be improved significantly, as well as the gain and the inversion duration to be increased. The data obtained will be used to choose the operating conditions for the active medium in the brightness amplifier mode.
