This paper contains an analysis of the optical properties of aperiodic multilayer structures constructed using the Morse–Thue, double-period, Fibonacci, and Rudin–Shapiro numerical sequences. A general quantitative law is established that determines how the scaling in their Fourier transforms is related to their spectral characteristics. Some practical aspects of the use of aperiodic systems are considered.
