In any field theory the interaction of a wave packet with a multilayered potential is of high theoretical and practical relevance. In the present work we show an extension to any number of layers of the classical Fabry–Perot formula that works for any level of absorption, any thickness of the composing layers, any number of layers, any angle of incidence and for evanescent waves as well. More specifically, the ability of dealing with input evanescent waves and complex metal-based structures is of special interest for superlenses analysis and design. Some explicit examples in electromagnetism are also discussed.
