The authors present calculations leading to the phonon density of states in a Fibonacci quasicrystal with fixed end-points. The method is based on a selective elimination process and the results show that the system at low frequencies has the behaviour of a periodic lattice. The high-frequency end of the spectrum is found to have large forbidden bands and in the limit of longer chains the higher-frequency modes are seen to be suppressed. The density of state function has further been used to… CONTINUE READING
