Abstract We study the transmission of electromagnetic waves propagating in three-dimensional disordered photonic crystals that are periodic on the average with a diamond symmetry. The transmission has been calculated using the transfer matrix method. We study two different geometries for the scatterers: spheres and rods connecting nearest neighbors. We find that the gaps of the periodic structure survive to a higher amount of disorder in the rods{close_quote} case than in the spheres{close_quote} case. We argue that this is due to the connectivity of the rod structure that exists for any amount of disorder. thinsp {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}
