Having no any explanations the radiation of high-frequency components of the pulsar in the Crab Nebula can be a manifestation of instability in the nonlinear reflection from the neutron 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 it is a stimulated scattering by surface waves, predicted more than forty years ago and still nowhere and by no one had been observed.
