An experimental investigation of the conversion efficiency of a high pressure CO2laser pumped CH3F Raman laser is reported. We show that resonance absorption of the CO2laser radiation in the CH3F gas can lead to a severe limitation of the efficiency. At CO2laser frequencies where the stimulated Raman action is strongest, a quantum efficiency for conversion of CO2laser radiation into far infrared radiation of the order of 0.1 is observed.
