Abstract: Existence of a spectral singularity (SS) in the spectrum of a Schrödinger operator with a non-Hermitian potential requires exact matching of parameters of the potential. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition for a potential to have a SS at a given wavelength. It is shown that potentials with SSs at prescribed wavelengths can be obtained by a simple and effective procedure. In particular, the developed approach allows one to obtain potentials with several SSs and with SSs of the second order, as well as potentials obeying a given symmetry, say, PT -symmetric potentials. We illustrate all these opportunities with examples. We also describe splitting of a second-order SS under change of the potential parameters, and discuss possibilities of experimental observation of SSs of different orders.
