We consider tunneling of electromagnetic waves through a polariton band gap of a one-dimensional chain of atoms. We analytically show that a defect embedded in the structure gives rise to the resonance transmission at the frequency of a local polariton state associated with the defect. Numerical Monte Carlo simulations are used to examine properties of the electromagnetic band arising inside the polariton gap due to finite concen-tration of defects.
