Abstract

Having no any explanations the high-frequency components in the radiation of the pulsar in the Crab Nebula can be a manifestation of instability in the non-linear reflection from the star surface. Reflected radiation it is the radiation of relativistic positrons flying from the magnetosphere to the star and accelerated by the electric field of the polar gap. The discussed instability is a stimulated scattering by surface waves.
