The ac-transport properties of a one-dimensional quantum dot with non-Fermi liquid correlations are investigated. It is found that the linear photoconductance is drastically influenced by the interaction. While for weak interaction it shows peak-like resonances, in the strong interaction regime it assumes a step-like behavior. In both cases the photo-transport provides precise informations about the quantized plasmon modes in the dot. Temperature and voltage dependences of the sideband peaks are treated in detail. Characteristic Luttinger liquid power laws are found.
