The history of development and the most important results of physical investigations in the field of metal vapor lasers (MVL) at SB RAS Institutes are presented. The processes determining the inversion and energy characteristics, plasma properties of the pulse-periodic discharges, active media excitation by electron beams, constructional and technological problems of MVL realization are described. Brief information on the known and possible future MVL applications is given; issues of the day are presented.
