High-repetition-rate solid-state lasers broadly tunable in the red-orange and infrared spectral regions are reported. Wavelengths between 590 and 670 nm and between 1170 and 1360 nm have been generated by gain-switched Cr:forsterite lasers incorporating intracavity frequency doubling in KTP. Broadband, tuned, and narrow-band systems operating at repetition rates between 1 and 20 kHz have been developed. Maximum visible output power of 40 mW was achieved by frequency doubling of a narrow-band infrared laser, corresponding to a fundamental to second-harmonic conversion efficiency of more than 30%
