The nonlinear one-dimensional model of controllable photonic crystals is considered. A photonic crystal is formed in a dielectric film on which the electromagnetic pump and signal waves fall. It is shown that the shape of the superlattice is controlled by the variation of the external electrostatic field imposed on the film. Thus it leads to changing boundaries of the allowed and forbidden zones of the signal wave spectrum.
