Results of experimental measurements and theoretical calculations concerning the scattering of plane wave radiation by a system of two interacting spheres are presented. In particular, the complex scattering amplitude of such a system and the phenomena of specular resonances are addressed. Preliminary calculations of the two-sphere Muller matrix are also considered.
