Paper Abstract

The results of examination of characteristics of a CuBr laser with small active volume operated in the doublepumping-pulse mode with a lasing pulse repetition rate of 50 Hz are presented. Owing to the use of pumping sources with pulsed step charge of the working capacity, effective energy input to the active medium of the laser is realized. The potential to enhance the laser efficiency by choosing the optimum voltages of dissociation and excitation pulses and time delay values is discussed. It is confirmed that a more than twofold increase in the laser efficiency may be achieved through optimization and matched injection of the excitation-pulse energy into the active medium plasma. The maximum efficiency of the laser was 2.7%.
