Is there any way to change the frequency and ultimatly the color of a red laser after it has left the laser cavity. I am in the 8th grade and I am using a normal red laser pointer. I do not want to have to take apart the laser and replace the lasing medium. I would never get it back together. It has an all metal shell and I would have to cut it. If you can think of no other way but to do this please tell me anyways. I am very capable. I was thinking that there may be a substance that can alter the frequency of the beam by merely shining the beam on or into the substance. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
