A charge transfer pumping as a possible tool for lasing in XUV is investigated in the Institute of Laser Physics, Novosibirsk. A new scheme based on the laser-produced plasma colliding with the laser-evaporated gas was previously proposed and tested. It showed that lasing at 51.2 nm can be achieved on the 4-3 transition of Li-like O+5 ion. Preliminary results on the enhanced emission at 50 nm and on the specifics of charge transfer reaction [MATH] are reported.
