In its relatively short history as a Raman laser material, CVD diamond has already demonstrated to be a forerunner in performance. Yet the more outstanding properties of the material such as its high thermal conductivity and wide transmission range remain largely unexploited. This paper summarizes the recent studies aimed to extend diamond laser capability beyond that readily achievable using other materials, focusing on in particular diamond Raman lasers in the ultraviolet, infrared and at high average powers.
