In this paper we numerically study localization properties of band gap states in a one-dimensional periodic-onaverage random system (PARS). These kinds of system were extensively studied in the past in the context of electron localization, where they were known as Kronig-Penny-like models (see, for example, Ref. [1–3] and references therein). Classical wave versions of 1-D PARS also recently attracted a considerable attention [4–8]. Most of these studies focused upon localization properties of… CONTINUE READING
