2D embedding of a 1D composite structure with mutual interaction of the subsystems causing modulations. Filled and empty circles represent the modulated substructures with periods [a_{1}] and [a_{2}] of the basic substructures, respectively. The atoms result from the parallel-space cut of the sinusoidal atomic surfaces running parallel to [{\bf d}_{1}] and [{\bf d}_{2}].
