Using binary and sinusoidal photonic crystals as examples, it is shown how to construct two independent Floquet–Bloch waves for TM-polarized light in a lossless one-dimensional periodic structure. Particular attention is given to those special situations where either one Bloch wave and a hybrid Floquet mode develop inside the structure (instead of two Bloch waves) or both developed Bloch waves become periodic functions.
