In the 30 years since tunable ultraviolet (UV) lasers based on 5d → 4f transition of trivalent lanthanides doped into solid-state hosts were first demonstrated, tremendous progress has been made in these unique laser systems. Today, cerium-doped fluoride lasers offer wide tunability (280-333 nm), high efficiency (up to 62%) and narrow-band output. These lasers can also be used for femtosecond pulse amplification in the UV. Cerium lasers represent a logical route to generation of tunable UV in all-solid-state systems. In this paper, we review the current state-of-the-art cerium laser crystal development and cerium laser systems.
