Abstract.  We theoretically investigate the spectral of light-localization in one-dimensional generalized Thue–Morse (GTM) photonic structures (n,m,k), where n and m are both positive integers representing parameters of GTM sequence and k is the order of this sequence. Numerical analysis is performed by the transfer matrix method algorithm to investigate their optical properties. We have shown that by varying m and n simultaneously, the electric field intensity in the GTM structure varies according to the parity of these parameters and also according to the peak positions.
