Based on the reciprocity theorem, we put forward a generalized parametric space for an arbitrary transfer matrix with parity time (PT) symmetry. Through this space, one can extract complete information involving PT phases, reflectances, transmittance and known extraordinary scattering phenomena. We demonstrate a PT heterostructure with coherent perfect absorption-lasing, anisotropic transmission resonance, and parity symmetry of reflection coefficients at the frequencies of interest. In addition, with the parametric space and the analytical formula, the corresponding complex dielectric permittivities for a simple PT system made of a gain, a gap, and a loss media in deeply subwavelength is derived to achieve various exotic PT functionality. This work could offer an alternative route to design versatile optical and photonic PT devices.
