Band structure of a sawtooth photonic crystal for optical wave propagation along the axis of periodicity is investigated. Floquet-Bloch solutions are found and illustrated for the bandgaps, allowed bands, and bandedges of the crystal. Special attention is given to the cases where Floquet-Bloch solutions become periodic functions.
