We present a microscopic theory and experimental results concerning resistance resonance in two tunneling coupled quantum wells with different mobilities. The shape of the resonance appears to be sensitive to the small angle scattering rate on remote impurities and to the electron-electron scattering rate. This allows the extraction of scattering parameters directly from the transport measurements. The negative resonance in a Hall coefficient is predicted and observed.
