We theoretically study optical response of InAs/GaAs quantum dot multilayered structures. Based on the multi-scale hybrid discrete-continuum description the optical response of an isolated layer of embedded quantum dots has been determined. Using the propagation-matrix approach we express the amplitudes of incident, reflected and transmitted electromagnetic waves in a multilayered structure by the reflection and transmission coefficients of the isolated layers. We study the overall reflectance and transmittance dependencies on the number of layers and distance between consecutive layers. The increase of the number of the layers considerably enhances the overall reflectance of the structures. Interference effects become significant for certain distances between layers in the structures.
