Continuous-wave operation of a diamond Raman laser is demonstrated. Low-birefringence synthetic single-crystal diamond is used and is intracavity pumped by a Nd:YVO(4) laser. A cw output power of 200 mW is achieved at the Raman wavelength (1240 nm), and 1.6 W of on-time output power is obtained in quasi-cw mode. Losses in the diamond (approximately 1% per pass) and thermal effects in the Nd:YVO(4) limit the efficiency.
