This Demonstration shows the electronic levels of 1D and 2D aperiodic systems compared with the related electronic density of states (DOS) and integrated DOS (IDOS). The latter are computed as histograms, counting the number of electronic levels in a given energy bin. The electronic structure is calculated using the tight-binding method [1].
