The possibility of controlling the generation parameters of a copper vapor laser (CVL) by varying the density of metastable states of Cu atoms both during pulsed excitation and within interpulse periods is considered. It is shown that control of the CVL generation parameters could be carried out without disruption of laser thermal conditions, and the regime of varying the generation parameters is independent of the means of excitation of the active medium.
