Abstract

We rigorously compute the resonance spectrum for a deformed spherical microcavity illuminated by plane waves. Particular attention is paid to the shift of resonances due to small departures from sphericity, which includes a discussion on the behavior of individual scattering coefficients. These results are obtained for deformed microcavities that are large with respect to the wavelength of the incident wave.
