    A variety of techniques for extending the wavelength capabilities of copper vapour laser systems upwards to the red and downwards to the ultraviolet are reviewed. Techniques discussed include CVL pumping of fixed-wavelength dye lasers, harmonic and sum-frequency generation from the CVL and CVL-pumped solid state lasers.
