We calculated the photonic band gap spectra of a one-dimensional magnetic photonic crystal made of alternating layers of bigyrotropic magnetic yttrium-iron garnet and nonmagnetic gadolinium gallium garnet. The forbidden regimes or band gaps in the electromagnetic wave spectrum were numerically obtained for the transversal magneto-optical configuration and compared with those for the polar and longitudinal magneto-optical configurations.
