This Demonstration shows the spectral properties of the Fibonacci quasicrystal from both algebraic and graphical points of view; in the latter case in real and reciprocal space. The Fibonacci quasicrystal is the most studied one-dimensional (1D) quasiperiodic model structure, given its interesting applications in photonics and acoustics.

## Details

Snapshot 1: letter sequence for the single periodic approximant at the initial stage with , with a frequency ratio limit still far from the golden number

Snapshot 2: same as the Thumbnail image but with transmission plot (, ) enabled, instead of the Fourier power spectrum

Snapshot 3: Fourier spectrum similar to the Thumbnail image but with a higher value, therefore with more spectral components
