An actively Q-switched dual-wavelength intracavity Raman laser based on a coaxially pumped dual-crystal (Nd:YAG and b-cut Nd:YAP) fundamental configuration was theoretically and experimentally investigated. Stable dual-wavelength Stokes output at 1176 nm and 1195 nm was subsequently obtained by the Raman conversion from an a-cut YVO4 crystal. A total average power of 1.8 W was produced at 10 kHz pulse repetition frequency under an incident diode pump power of 15.8 W, in which the power levels at the two Stokes wavelengths were nearly equivalent. The power proportion and the interval between the dual-wavelength Stokes pulses could be manipulated actively by changing the pump focal position or pump wavelength.
