Abstract

The study of PT-symmetric complex potentials has recently acquired very much attention in the field of quantum mechanics. In this article, we have solved the family of PT-symmetric octic potential to gain further insight in the eigen spectra of the complex quantum system. The potential parameters and the energy eigenvalue of the PT- symmetric octic potential have been obtained. The Hamiltonian retains the PT-symmetry but the wave function does not follow the PT- symmetry. This leads to breakdown of PT-symmetry.
