Abstract
Considering the rise time (understanding the rise speed as well) of the electrical intensity of the pumping pulse as the key parameter characterizing the output power of a copper-type laser, we present here a simplified model of the main kinetic processes occuring during the electrical pumping pulse and afterglow in a Ne-CuBr laser. The a priori knowledge of the typical temporal behavior of the electron density and electron temperature reduces the number of coupled differential equation to be solved. The importance of the parasitic radiative filling of the lower laser levels 2D via channels that are not involving the upper laser levels 2P is enhanced. The comparative green-yellow lasing efficiencies and the temporal timing of the optical pulses with respect to the excitation pulse are consistent with the experiments.
