The periodic reflections in frequency were observed in a stack of graphene layers and generally reported as a series of mini photonic bandgaps owing to the multiple interference by the graphene layers. In this research, the Floquet-Bloch theory was employed to obtain the effective refractive index and Bloch impedance for understanding the wave propagation characteristic therein. Interestingly, the periodic reflections were found to occur in the frequency band having drastic variation in complex Bloch impedance and effective refractive index as well, wherein a Floquet-Bloch mode having pure real effective refractive index and extremely low Bloch impedance exists.
