We study the diffraction patterns of a one-dimensional Fibonacci chain from quasiperiodic pulse trains. We find a single prominent peak when the dynamics of the incident wave matches the arrangement of the scatterers, that is, when the pulse train and the scatterers are in resonance. The maximum diffraction angle and the resonant pulse train determine the positions of the scatterers. These results may provide a methodology for the quality control of Fibonacci multilayers, and may have further impact when extended to higher dimensions.
