Experimental results are reported for nonlinear interactions between a nonrelativistic electron beam and the ponderomotive field (beat wave) of two counterpropagating pulsed CO2 laser beams, operating at different frequencies in a stimulated Compton scheme. Very high electron trapping efficiencies were obtained by introducing a nonadiabatic shift in the energy of the electrons in order to bring them into resonance with the ponderomotive wave. With an axial decelerating electric field applied along an interaction path of 12 cm, trapping efficiencies of above 60% with energy transfer of 6 eV between the electrons and the radiation field were obtained
