An exact computable expression is obtained for the electromagnetic field of a three-dimensional partially finite periodic array of lossless or lossy magnetodielectric spheres illuminated by a plane wave propagating parallel to the array axis. The array is finite in the direction of the array axis and is of infinite extent in the directions transverse to the array axis. Illustrative numerical examples are presented.
