Tunable, room temperature pulsed laser operation of a chromium-doped forsterite laser for 1064-nm pumping is reported. Using different sets of mirrors and a single birefringent plate as the intracavity wavelength selecting element, tunability over the 1167–1345-nm spectral range has been demonstrated.
