One of the relevant objectives of the modern science is to find the ways of transformation of optical radiation into other frequency ranges with the possibility of smooth or stepwise radiation frequency tuning. Already with the advent of nonlinear optics it has become obvious that instead of having a number of generators, one for each frequency range, it is easier to have a not very large laser source and a radiation frequency transformer for it, just the way reduction units and gear boxes are used in the cars for shaft rotation frequency transformation instead of a number of engines. Transformation of radiation frequency in the course of going through nonlinear media occurs due to the harmonic generation effects, parametric actions, stimulated Raman scattering, phase self-modulation and so on. With the advent of femtosecond lasers a more significant spectrum conversion has become possible, for instance that into X-ray (attosecond pulses) and terahertz ranges . Herein we shall suggest a new, universal way of smooth conversion of the optical spectrum into any other range from gamma radiation to radio radiation.
