In this paper a correlation between 7Dj states of Eu+ and the atomic transitions system z10Dj —a10D0j in a gas discharge plasma has been revealed by the method of selective perturbation of the Eu+ 7D0j states populations. The mechanism of creating inversion in He-Eu+ laser is proposed. The main feature of this mechanism is a relaxation of the Eu+ 7D0j metastables in the process of electron capture by producing the auto- ionization states of europium.
