The oscillation condition of a simultaneous multiple wavelength laser has been established and used to analyze the possibility of simultaneous oscillation in various neodymium host crystals, such as Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF, Nd:BEL, and Nd:YAP crystals at the transitions from /sup 4/F/sub 3/2/-/sup 4/I/sub 13/2/ and /sup 4/F/sub 3/2/-/sup 4/I/sub 11/2/. It is shown that this kind of laser can be realized in all the described crystals in a pulsed state. In general, continuous wave (CW) operation, however, can only be achieved for Nd:YAP. On the basis of these results, CW simultaneous double wavelength lasing has been achieved in a Nd:YAP crystal for the first time at both 1.0795 mu m and 1.314 mu m.<>
