In this work we present a prospective study on the potential capabilities of optical devices based on Fibonacci dielectric multilayers. We perform a detailed analytical comparison of the linear optical response of periodic versus quasiperiodic multilayers. Based on this study we will suggest the use of hybrid-order devices, composed of both periodic and quasiperiodic subunits to design microcavities of practical interest, and we provide some illustrative examples. From our study we conclude that the inclusion of quasiperiodically ordered subunits substantially widens the possibilities of engineering modular optical structures.
