When a thin-film ring with supercurrent is irradiated by coherent microwave field, the field induces coherent oscillations of all the Cooper pairs involved in the supercurrent. The oscillating charged condensate will emit photons with energies determined by the difference of quantized energy levels of the superconducting ring. This effect can be observed only in the rings, the thickness of which is less than both the field skin-depth and the London penetration depth. The probability of the…
