In this paper, we consider the three-dimensional Schrdinger operator with a -interaction of strength > 0 supported on an unbounded surface parametrized by the mapping R2x(x,f(x)), where 0, and f:R2R, f 0, is a C2-smooth, compactly supported function. The surface supporting the interaction can be viewed as a local deformation of the plane. It is known that the essential spectrum of this Schrdinger operator coincides with 142,+. We prove that for all sufficiently small > 0, its discrete spectrum is non-empty and consists of a unique simple eigenvalue. Moreover, we obtain an asymptotic expansion of this eigenvalue in the limit 0+. In particular, this eigenvalue tends to 142 exponentially fast as 0+.
