Abstract
We investigate the influence of ion collisional excitation on gain estimates for lasing between the two 3d - 2p fine-structure transitions in a recombining, hydrogen-like magnesium plasma. A sizable reduction of the 3d3/2 - 2p1/2 gain coefficient is found, resulting from both collisional population transfer and from lower state broadening of the emission profile. The need for care in evaluating the latter effect is discussed
