Abstract
Using a continuously tunable CO2 laser we demonstrate the generation of far-infrared radiation by use of a multipass Raman cell. The optical length of the cell was variable between 11 m and 71 m. Pumping the aR(6,K) multiplet in "NI-13, we obtained maximum pulse energies exceeding 7 m.T and far-infrared tuning ranges of more than 3 crirl. Comparing the multipass Raman cell with a 1.2 m long singlepass waveguide far-infrared laser we found an increase of the maximum photon conversion coefficient by a factor of 3 up to a maximum value of :36%.
