The dispersion characteristics of electromagnetic wave in one-dimensional magnetized ferrite photonic crystals containing yttrium iron garnets and nickel ferrite in a unit cell is investigated for transverse magnetic mode when external magnetic field is perpendicular to the plane of wave propagation. The dispersion relation is derived using transfer matrix method based on the continuity conditions of tangential electric and magnetic field components. It is observed that dispersion properties and phase index are strongly dependent on the normalized parallel wave vector and the filling factor. At the Brewster angle, width of photonic band gap shrinks to zero. Also, the considered structure indicates its dielectric behavior for electromagnetic wave propagation.
