The spatial-energetic structure of the radiation of lasers with high gains of active media and short pulse lengths has been investigated. An experimental and theoretical technique is suggested which demonstrates that the radiation of lasers of this type is a superposition of several components and enables the number of these components to be determined along with their divergence and power. The capabilities of this technique are illustrated in the example of determination of the output characteristics of a copper vapor laser.
