A copper vapor laser performance by using a metal-vapor-complex reaction (CuAlBr3) is reported. The laser operation is obtained at a low temperature without external heating because of the AlBr3 vapors evaporation at a room temperature. The copper vapor laser using this metal-vapor-complex reaction has an advantage of deposition-free of a metalilc copper to the laser tube wall, which is different from the copper halide and the organometallic copper lasers.
