Abstract Light travelling through a slab made of a photonic material is expected to decay exponentially if its frequency lies within a bandgap. Numerical calculations as well as experiments show that sometimes a more complex behaviour occurs: The field inside the crystal may decay bi-exponentially or show saturation i.e. a small part of the incoming field is transmitted without attenuation. These propagation properties can be explained by a generic model which is solved analytically. The model medium consists of a separable dielectric function which is the sum of two one dimensional square well functions or trigonometric functions in two perpendicular directions. 1
