Abstract
In this paper, an overview is presented on the frequency tunable methylfluoride Raman laser. By use of a continuously tunable high pressure CO2 laser as pump source, tunable far-infrared radiation can be obtained from all the stable isotopes of methylfluoride which have symmetric top structure. Using these gases, 12CH3F, 13CH3F, 12CD3F and 13CD3F, as FIR media about half of the frequency region from 8 cm-1 to 73 cm-1 can be covered with tunable intense pulsed radiation. We studied quantum effiencies and bandwidths of the tuning intervals for the different gases and also for different pump schemes.
