By generalising Rudin’s construction of an aperiodic sequence, we derive new substitution-based structures which have a purely absolutely continuous diffraction measure and a mixed dynamical spectrum, with absolutely continuous and pure point parts. We discuss several examples, including a construction based on Fourier matrices which yields constant-length substitutions for any length.
