Copper vapor laser

Copper vapor laser (CVL) uses vapors of copper as the lasing medium. It produces green laser light at 510.6 nm and yellow laser light at 578.2 nm. The pulse width is typically from 5 to 60 ns, and peak power from 50 to 5000 kW. Its pulse repetition frequencies can be 2 to 100kHz.

It is one of the laser constructions that can be realized as homemade.

Copper vapor lasers are used in some machining and laser cutting applications. They can also be used in AVLIS isotope separation systems.
