We report a high average power Ce:LiLuF laser pumped by the second harmonic of the yellow output from a copper vapor laser. This cerium laser yielded up to 380 mW at a pulse repetition frequency of 7 kHz at the peak lasing wavelength of 309.5 nm, with a slope efficiency of 50%. In addition, single prism tunability was obtained from 305.5 to 316 nm and from 322 to 331.8 nm, Preliminary investigation into color center behavior has been performed involving crystal cooling, He-Ne pump probe experiments and antisolarant pumping
