We consider a non-relativistic quantum particle interacting with a singular potential supported by two parallel straight lines in the plane. We locate the essential spectrum under the hypothesis that the interaction asymptotically approaches a constant value, and nd conditions which guarantee either the existence of discrete eigenvalues or Hardy-type inequalities. For a class of our models admitting mirror symmetry, we also establish the existence of embedded eigenvalues and show that they turn into resonances after introducing a small perturbation.

Keywords: Schrödinger operator, singular perturbation, spectral analysis, Hardy inequality, resonance
