Schematic representation of the reciprocal space of the embedded 1D composite structure depicted in Fig.[link]. Filled and empty circles represent the reflections generated by the substructures with periods [a_{1}] and [a_{2}], respectively. The actual 1D diffraction pattern of the 1D CS results from a projection of the 2D reciprocal space onto the parallel space. The correspondence between 2D reciprocal-lattice positions and their projected images is indicated by dashed lines.
