Light propagation in one-dimensional (1D) periodic structures (photonic crystals), including absorption, is studied analytically. Oblique incidence on a slab with an arbitrary complex valued refractive index is treated. The transfer matrix method and Bragg conditions are modified accordingly. The propagation in a sinusoidal absorptive crystal is computed as an example.
