Light propagation in one-dimensional (1D) photonic crystals with dissipation (including metal layers) is studied analytically. The proper effective refractive indices and extinctions of dissipative layers in case of oblique incidence are introduced. Then, the formalism available for nondissipative photonic crystals is modified by replacing the conventional refractive indices with effective ones. Propagation in a bilayer dielectric-metallic crystal is computed as an example.
