Abstract: We describe a class of measurable subsets $ \Omega $ in $ {\mathbb{R}^d}$ such that $ {L^2}(\Omega )$ has an orthogonal basis of frequencies $ {e_\lambda }(x) = {e^{i2\pi \bullet x}}(x \in \Omega )$ indexed by $ \lambda \in \Lambda \subset {\mathbb{R}^d}$. We show that such spectral pairs $ (\Omega ,\Lambda )$ have a self-similarity which may be used to generate associated fractal measures $ \mu $ with Cantor set support. The Hilbert space $ {L^2}(\mu )$ does not have a total set of orthogonal frequencies, but a harmonic analysis of $ \mu $ may be built instead from a natural representation of the Cuntz $ {{\text{C}}^{\ast}}$-algebra which is constructed from a pair of lattices supporting the given spectral pair $ (\Omega ,\Lambda )$. We show conversely that such a pair may be reconstructed from a certain Cuntz-representation given to act on $ {L^2}(\mu )$.
