We show that the deviation from power laws of the scaling of chaotic measures such as Lyapunov exponents and topological entropy is periodic in the logarithm of the distance from the accumulation of period doubling. Moreover, this periodic function is asymptotically universal for each measure (for functions in the appropriate universality class). This is related to the concept of lacunarity known to exist for scaling functions describing the mass distribution of self-similar fractal sets.
