The transfer matrix method and the semiclassical coupled wave theory (SCWT) are modified and applied to 1D absorptive photonic crystals. The presented treatment allows to calculate the reflection/transmission characteristics of a photonic crystal with an arbitrary shape of the refractive index on the period.
