Between 1993 and 1996 a new 14.5 GHz electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) ion source was designed and built at A TOMKI for atomic and plasma physics research. In 1996 the assembling of the ion source has been finished and the first plasma diagnostic (visible and X-ray) measurements were carried out. In this work we started an investigation of the spectral distribution of the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum. We studied the change of relative line intensities and the Xe2+ to Xe1+ ratio depending on the pressure inside the plasma. We were able to find spectral lines of Xe2+ which are good candidates for plasma diagnostic tools in future investigations.
