An efficient, stable diode-end-pumped simultaneous continuous-wave (CW) dual-wavelength laser operating at 1.319 and 1.338 ?m in a Nd:YAG crystal has been demonstrated. A total output power of 6.3 W is achieved at an absorbed pump power of 15 W, with a slope efficiency of 43.5%. The instability of output power is less than 1%. With a type II critical phase-matched KTP crystal inserted into the cavity as frequency doubler, a maximum outputpower of 200 mW in red region is acquired. In addition, a six-wavelength laser operation at 1.319 ?m, 1.338 ?m, 1.356 ?m, 659.5 nm, 669 nm, and 678 nm is observed.
