Dual-wavelength waveguide lasing at 1064 and 1342 nm corresponding to the F 4 3 / 2 I 4 11 / 2 and F 4 3 / 2 I 4 13 / 2 Nd transitions has been demonstrated in a femtosecond-laser-inscribed Nd: YVO 4 channel waveguide. Under 808 nm optical pumping, the obtained laser thresholds at 1064 and 1342 nm were 180 and 210 mW , respectively. The laser slope efficiencies at 1064 and 1342 nm were found to be 15.6% and 1.7%, respectively.
