Abstract

          In the 1960's vapors of metals were examined for low-lying energy-level structures to provide efficient laser action. Lead and manganese were earlier, but copper has a more ideal energy-level configuration that yields high-power green and yellow pulsed lasers. Copper lasers have demonstrated high gain, scalability to large diameters and a high-brightness output using unstable or high-loss optical resonators.
