A copper-bromide laser was studied for the purpose of increasing the average lasing power and the efficiency. An average lasing power of 112W with a pulse repetition frequency of 25kHz was obtained. For an average lasing power of 100W the efficiency with respect to the rectifier was equal to 1.71%. The highest efficiency with respect to the rectifier (1.8%) was achieved with an average power of 85W.
