The operation of a CuBr laser in an excitation pulse train mode has been investigated. The experimental data obtained allow one to determine the characteristic time for which copper atoms are lost by the active medium of the laser. The analysis performed based on a numerical simulation of the laser operation has shown that the copper atoms are lost in the processes of reduction of CuBr molecules due to reactions of interaction of copper atoms with bromine ions. The predicted time for which copper atoms are lost by the laser active medium (150 μs) is in good agreement with the experimental one.
