Paper Abstract

We propose the construction of electromagnetic and electronic multicavity resonators based on the mechanism of dynamical tunneling proper of mixed chaotic systems. We use chaotic two-dimensional (2D) waveguides formed by a linear array of coupled cavities whose geometrical parameters are chosen to produce mixed phase space: chaotic regions surrounding islands of stability where ray (particle) motion is regular. Rays (particles) coming into the waveguide cannot penetrate into these islands but incoming plane waves tunnel into them at a certain discrete set of frequencies (energies) forming quasi-bound states. In this paper we demonstrate the tunneling mechanism in 2D waveguides and how it can be used to design multicavity resonators. We also discuss possible applications in the construction of microlasers and electro-optical beam splitters and switches.
