Abstract

We discuss new results describing the relationship between quantum radiation caused by zero-point oscillations and radiative resonant wave-particle interactions. We show that the formation of a power-law spectrum of fast particles produced by radiative resonant interactions [V.N. Tsytovich, Phys. Rep. 178 (1989) 261; Physica 210 (1981) 136; Physica Scripta 52 (1982) 54] is related to the interaction of zero-point oscillations with resonant particle acceleration. Possible experiments to measure the electromagnetic radiation produced by this process are suggested.
