Abstract : A laser for generating a coherent output beam with a frequency equal to the sum or difference of the frequencies of two input pumping beams or the harmonics thereof. The laser includes a lasing medium of the type with an inverse Faraday effect resonance frequency a laser cavity with the lasing medium positioned therein, two coherent light sources for generating pumping beams at frequency f1 and f2, where the f1 beam is circulatory polarized, and an optical system for directing the pumping beams into the lasing medium.
