In this paper we report the status of the experiment MIR (Motion Induced Radiation), aimed at the experimental veri¯cation of the dynamical Casimir e®ect. The stringent theoretical requirements to observe the e®ect are satis¯ed in a scheme in which the conductivity of a semiconductor inside a superconducting microwave resonant cavity is varied in time. Free carriers in the semiconductor are periodically excited and recombine at 5 GHz. In this process vacuum and thermal photons are parametrically ampli¯ed in a time interval of 200-500 ns.
