# Microwave study of quantum n-disk scattering

@article{Lu2000MicrowaveSO, title={Microwave study of quantum n-disk scattering}, author={Lu and Viola and Pance and Rose and Sridhar}, journal={Physical review. E, Statistical physics, plasmas, fluids, and related interdisciplinary topics}, year={2000}, volume={61 4 Pt A}, pages={ 3652-63 } }

We describe a wave-mechanical implementation of classically chaotic n-disk scattering based on thin two-dimensional microwave cavities. Two-, three-, and four-disk scatterings are investigated in detail. The experiments, which are able to probe the stationary Green's function of the system, yield both frequencies and widths of the low-lying quantum resonances. The observed spectra are found to be in good agreement with calculations based on semiclassical periodic orbit theory. Wave-vector…

This work studies the distribution of resonances for geometrically finite hyperbolic surfaces of infinite area by counting resonances numerically and focuses on three aspects of the resonance distribution that have attracted attention recently: the fractal Weyl law, the spectral gap, and the concentration of decay rates.
