2D embedding of a 1D composite structure without mutual interaction of the subsystems. Filled and empty circles represent the atoms of the unmodulated substructures with periods [a_{1}] and [a_{2}], respectively. The atoms result from the parallel-space cut of the linear atomic surfaces parallel to [{\bf d}_{1}] and [{\bf d}_{2}].
