One of the urgent problems of physics is to discover new ways of transforming optical radiation into other frequency ranges with the possibility of smooth tuning of the radiation frequency. Usually, such a transformation is carried out by means of nonlinear effects in a medium, which imposes serious restrictions on the degree and efficiency of conversion of the frequency of light, on the maximum power and duration of the output signal (from absorption and optical breakdown of the medium). Here we propose a new method for smooth transformation of the duration of laser pulses and tuning of the frequency of optical radiation in any other range of electromagnetic waves traveling in a vacuum and without such restrictions.
