Abstract

We investigate the problem of wavepacket revivals in coupled nonuniform linear optical structures. Starting from the photonic Bloch lattices and Jx arrays, whose propagators are fully periodic, we use cascaded discrete supersymmetric transformations to generate a family of nonuniform isospectral lattices. These new structures exhibit perfect imaging for any initial condition despite the apparent lack of order in their physical parameters. We note, however. that the SUSY-induced disordered coefficients are not random but, rather, inherit some of the features associated with the original array.
