Within the approach of collective variables based on the Thiele equation, an exact solution of the problem of quantum dynamics of vortex in a small circular magnetic particle is obtained. It is shown that the vortex dynamics in the circular magnetic particle may be used to create mesoscopic quantum systems with a pre-selected distribution energy level and to exert control over intensity of transitions between these levels by changing the particle geometry.
