The results of numerical studies of pulsed radiation of the induction copper vapor laser are presented. The laser is excited by trains of high-frequency (10–70 MHz) electric current oscillations. Trains follow one after another with a frequency in 2–17 kHz. The features and variety of obtained laser radiation pulse shapes and their applicability to diagnostic purposes and other practical problems are discussed.
