The results of an experimental study of a gas-discharge Ne–Eu laser are presented. In this work, lasing lines, pulse shapes in the europium atom and ion are identified under the conditions of this experiment. The effects of the buffer gas pressure and pulse repetition rate on the energy characteristics of the laser are ascertained; their optimal values are found. It is shown that the output power is 1 W at the 1759 nm line and 70 mW at the 664.5 nm line for the corresponding transitions under optimal operating conditions.
