The PT-symmetric complexi?ed Scarf II potential V(x) =-V 1sech2 x + iV2sechx tanh x, V1 > 0, V2 ≠= 0, is revisited to study the interplay among its coupling parameters. The existence of an isolated real and positive energy level that has recently been identfied as a spectral singularity or zero-width resonance is here demonstrated through the behaviour of the corresponding wavefunctions and some property of the associated pseudo-norms is pointed out. We also construct four different rationally extended supersymmetric partners to V(x), which are PT-symmetric or complex non-PT-symmetric according to the coupling parameters range. A detailed study of one of these partners reveals that SUSY preserves the V(x) spectral singularity existence. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
