Title: Experimental Study of Quantum Graphs with Microwave Networks: Non-universal Features
Abstract: Quantum graphs provide a setting to test the hypothesis that all ray-chaotic systems show universal wave chaotic properties.  Here, an experimental setup consisting of a microwave coaxial cable network is used to simulate quantum graphs. The networks, which are large compared to the wavelength, are constructed from coaxial cables connected by T junctions. The distributions of impedance statistics are obtained from experiments on an ensemble of tetrahedral networks. The random coupling model (RCM) is applied in an attempt to uncover the universal statistical properties of the system. Deviations from RCM predictions have been observed in that the statistics of diagonal and off-diagonal impedance elements are different. The loss parameter of the network is independently determined by quality factor calculation and numerical simulation. Waves trapped due to multiple reflections on bonds between nodes in the graph most likely  cause the deviations from universal behavior in the finite-size realization of a quantum graph.
