A pulsed open discharge produces a photoresonant plasma outside the discharge channel. In this paper some results of the studies of photoresonant plasma in a Zn-He mixture are described. Oscillograms of radiation pulses from an open discharge zone and a neighboring medium are compared. The peaked structure is detected in radiation pulses at some lines. The important processes resulting in the population inversion and ionization of metal atoms are discussed.
