Spectroscopic studies of collisions between He+ and He++ ions with H2 gas target have been performed in the 200–600 nm wavelength range. Atomic lines of hydrogen Balmer series and several helium lines were identified and their excitation functions between 50 eV and 1 keV (2 keV for He++) were determined.
