We experimentally demonstrated a dual-wavelength independently mode-locked Yb:YAG ceramic laser in a single cavity. Dual-wavelength mode locking at 1033.6 and 1047.6 nm was operated simultaneously in one beam. Each pulse width was measured to be approximately 380 fs using an autocorrelator. The spectral widths were 4.50 nm centered at 1033.6 nm and 3.08 nm centered at 1047.6 nm. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first dual-wavelength mode locking achieved in Yb-doped solid-state lasers.
