The transmission spectra perform huge fluctuations even in the mostly suitable one-dimensional localized multilayer system. Fluctuations of layer thicknesses will cause random resonances between light waves and layers. We reveal that the nonuniform ensembles of the resonances are the key for the fluctuations of transmission spectra. The transmission spectra of each stack of layers are numerically calculated through the transfer-matrix method.
