The peak output power of Cu II laser emission in the uv at 260 nm and in the ir at 780 nm was measured for different operating conditions in the pulsed and the cw mode. In contrast to the ir laser output the laser power in the uv is higher in the cw mode than in the quasi cw mode. This property depends on contaminations of the discharge gas.
