Ultraviolet scattering on quantum crossbars (QCB's) is an effective tool for probing QCB spectral properties, leading to excitation of QCB plasmon(s). Experimentally, such a process corresponds to sharp peaks in the frequency dependence of the differential scattering cross section. The peak frequency strongly depends on the direction of the scattered light. As a result, the one-dimensional to two-dimensional crossover can be observed in the scattering spectrum. It manifests itself as a splitting of single lines into multiplets (mostly doublets). The splitting magnitude increases with interaction in QCB crosses, while the peak amplitudes decrease with electron-electron interaction within a QCB constituent.
