We compute the effect of rigid rotation on the non-relativistic bound states.
The energy levels of the bound states increase with the angular velocity of
rotation until at certain value of the angular velocity they are completely
pushed out into the continuum which corresponds to dissociation of the bound
states. When the angular velocity exceeds the critical value at which the
ground state disappears into the continuum, no bound state is possible. This
effect should have important consequences for the phenomenology of the
quark-gluon plasma. One of the ways to study it experimentally is to observe
the electromagnetic radiation emitted by a rotating bound state. We compute the
corresponding intensity of electromagnetic radiation and show that it strongly
depends on the angular velocity of rotation.
