The ac properties of weakly coupled layered thin film superconducting systems are studied for cases of isotropic and anisotropic pairing within a microscopic approach. It is shown that the shape of the ac characteristics crucially depends on the type of symmetry of the anisotropic order parameter because of the sensitivity of the induced ac Josephson current to the order parameter phase. The model suggests a reasonable microscopical explanation for c-polarized far-infrared experiments on metal oxides.
