Abstract: The subject of investigation is a CuBr laser emitting in the deep ultraviolet spectrum (248.6, 252.9, 259.7, 260.0 and 270.3 nm). Ten operating laser characteristics and the dependent characteristics – average output laser power, are examined by applying multivariate statistical analysis (cluster, factor, and regression analysis). The relationships between the 10 independent variables and the degree of their influence on output power are established. The results are analyzed and interpreted from a physical point-of-view.
