Charge exchange recombination is known as an effective scheme to get population inversion in the EUV-range. Highly ionised plasma jets and a neutral target could be very efficient (sigma CE > 10(exp -15) cm2) to realisation of this atomic scheme. Theoretical estimates and preliminary experiments show that for plasma focus with a stored energy of several kJ one can reach a substantial population inversion for ions of light elements with charge number Z<10. Experimental studies of production of these plasma jets in a 2 kJ plasma focus device is presented. Moreover the optimal properties of possible targets are investigated. Experimental results for the interaction of the plasma jets and targets are presented.
