We formulate the photonic band-structure problem for a one-dimensional photonic crystal in terms of the

reflection and transmission coefficients, obtaining a transcendental photonic band equation. The reflection and

the transmission coefficients may be evaluated by using the standard transfer-matrix method. The structure of

the equation reveals the existence of gaps, analogous to the Kronig-Penney model in the electronic band-

structure problem. As an example, the photonic band equation is solved for the simple case of the Kronig-

Penney dielectric structure, consisting of alternating slabs of refractive indices n 1 and n 2 .
