We study the existence of scalar fields outside neutral reflecting shells. We consider static massive scalar fields non-minimally coupled to the Gauss–Bonnet invariant. We analytically investigated properties of scalar fields through the scalar field equation. In the small scalar field mass regime, we derive a compact resonance formula for the allowed masses of scalar fields in the composed scalar field and shell configurations.
