An analysis is performed of the mechanism responsible for excitation of the levels 23S1, 21S0, 23P012, 21P1 of He in a gas discharge with a tubular cathode of special construction. Using the experimentally determined electron kinetic characteristics, the populations of these levels are calculated with consideration of transitions between the levels. The calculated data are then compared with the results of optical measurements.
