    Abstract

    The photonic band structure of a face-centered-cubic lattice of spheres is calculated using the plane-wave method for Maxwells equations. Comparisons with the available experimental results show rather good agreement, except that we do not find a true gap for this configuration. This we believe is due to symmetry reasons at the W point.
