Abstract. We consider the discrete spectrum of the Dirichlet Laplacian on a manifold consisting of two adjacent parallel straight strips or planar layers coupled by a finite number $N$ of windows in the common boundary. If the windows are small enough, there is just one isolated eigenvalue. We find upper and lower asymptotic bounds on the gap between the eigenvalue and the essential spectrum in the planar case, as well as for $N=1$ in three dimensions. Based on these results, we formulate a conjecture on the weak-coupling asymptotic behaviour of such bound states.
