We have devised and demonstrated a technique that allows the simultaneous (in space and time) generation of two independent and well-separated Nd:YAG laser lines. We use this system to study three-wave mixing in nonlinear optical crystals. Application of this laser system coupled with suitable nonlinear optical crystals permitted us to simultaneously generate frequencies extending throughout the visible (including the three primary colors) and into the near-UV.
