Our present study demonstrates for the first time generation of frequency-tunable intense infrared radiation pulses in the nanosecond time regime by mode-locking a high pressure CO2 laser using p-doped germanium as a saturable absorber. These pulses were transferred into the FIR region via stimulated Raman scattering of the CO2 laser radiation in CH3F resulting in subnanosecond FIR laser pulses.
