In this work we generalize the notion of superscattering and associate it with a symmetry group of a scattering object. Using the group theory approach we describe a way to spectrally overlap several eigenmodes of a resonator in order to achieve scattering enhancement. Importantly, this can be done by simple variation of geometric parameters of the system, implying that the symmetry is preserved. We also demonstarte that a scattering cross-section limit of a spherical object is not valid for the case of non-spherical geometries. As an example, we use finite-size ceramic cylinder and demonstrate that a dipolar scattering cross-section limit of a spherical object can be exceeded by more then 3 times. The obtained results may be promising for design of antennas and radio frequency identification systems.
