Abstract
Population densities for the excited levels of hydrogen-like ions in an optically thin plasma have been calculated in order to investigate the appropriate conditions for the generation of population inversion by recombination and subsequent development of gain in laser systems. To achieve this goal, collisional-radiative model in a range of electron temperature of 4000Z2 - 256000Z2 0K and electron density of 108 Z7 - 1018 Z7 cm-3 is used. In addition, the inversion threshold temperature is introduced and used in characteristic graphs which helps to identify the inversion conditions.
