Summary We investigate the lateral wave transport in quasiperiodically ordered layer media with isotropic randomness. As an example, we consider the case of the Fibonacci sequence and study the ergodic proper-ties in such systems. From the results of the channel occupation number of nine generations, we find that the wave transport in such systems falls between the transport of anisotropic hopping systems and that of randomly layered media and can be associated with a fractal dimension that can be tuned according to the strength of the layer coupling. The origin of this fractal dimensionality is attributed to the interplay between the quasiperiodic ordering in the layer direction and the presence of isotropic randomness in the system.
