More complex structures displaying singular-continuous spectraa can also be conveniently generated by the symbolic substitution method [13]. In such media, the Fourier spectra are no longer composed of individual Bragg peaks separated by well-defined gaps but exhibit a structure similar to that of a Cantor set in the infinite system size limit. However, one can observe a number of relatively broad peaks in finite systems, which progressively smear out as the system size increases. The chief a The support of the Fourier spectrum of singular-continuous structures can be covered by an ensemble of open intervals with an arbitrarily small total length.

Therefore, based on our previous discussion we expect that the diffraction pattern of a Fibonacci chain contains Bragg peaks that densely fill the reciprocal space and are indexed by two Miller 19 October 7, 2013 16:9 PSP Book - 9in x 6in 01-Luca-Dal-Negro-c01 20 Aperiodic Order for Nanophotonics indices.

Moreover, according to Eq. 15), the brightest diffraction spots will appear for τ m − m ≈ 0 that implies m/m close to τ .

With pm elements), where p is a prime number and m is a positive integer. A Galois field of order pm is usually denoted as GF( pm ). , Legendre sequences), are efficiently generated by a linear recursion [30, 69– 71]. Galois nanoparticle arrays can be constructed by generalizing Galois recursions in two spatial dimensions, as detailed in Refs. [30, 80]. 6g shows a calculated Galois particle array. The reciprocal Fourier space is shown in Fig. 6h, and features a broad distribution of spatial frequencies even for a relatively small array size, without the presence of a sharp Bragg peak.
