Continuous-wave laser action has been demonstrated in a diode-pumped crystal. Crystal growth, spectroscopic measurements, and laser results are presented. A maximum output power of , a slope efficiency of 43%, and a continuous wavelength tunability range of , from 1013 to , have been obtained at room temperature.
