The transmission properties of a one-dimensional photonic crystal containing uniaxial indefinite metamaterial are investigated using the transfer matrix method. It is shown that the photonic bandgaps of the structure strongly depend on the orientation of the optical axis of the indefinite metamaterial. The results show that it is possible to obtain the Brewster condition for both TE and TM polarizations. This condition noticeably affects the profiles of the electromagnetic field inside the one-dimensional periodic structure.
