Abstract

Using Floquet-Bloch theory, we find incipient bands (vanishing gaps) in the band structures of one-dimensional photonic crystals with a piece-wise constant profile of the refractive index, and in the band structures of continuously differentiable periodic potentials. The emphasis is on potentials that allow solutions in an exact analytical form.
