We report the results of quantum-mechanical calculations of the transmission properties of a two-dimensional noninteracting electron gas through a ballistic cross, where a box resonator is placed at the center of the junction. The transmission and reflection probabilities, and therefore the bend resistance, fluctuate irregularly as a function of energy. The oscillation is discussed in terms of the cavity resonances.
