A pulsed Nd:YAG laser is reported that is simultaneously operated at 1.32 and 1.06 μm, while the intensity ratio of the two outputs is controllable over a wide dynamic range. The laser resonator configuration is described. A wedge prism is used to control the intensity ratio. At high pump intensity the interaction between the lines is increased, and some quenching of the 1.32-μm line is observed. The beam quality obtained was sufficient to couple most of the dual-wavelength laser energy into a 0.6-mm IR quartz fiber.
