The existence of uncoupled modes is identified by gaps in the transmission spectra when the density of states is nonzero. We use a group theoretic analysis of the photonic band structure for a simple cubic lattice to tag the symmetry and polarization of each band. The results are compared with transmission spectra calculated by the transfer matrix method.
