We summarize recent progress in low-cost and highly-efficient Cr:Colquiriite laser technology. Pumping with inexpensive single-mode diodes, 270-mW of output power and a total tunability from 754 to 1042 nm were demonstrated in continuous-wave operation. In mode-locked operation, 100-fs pulses with 50-nJ pulse energy were demonstrated.
