Summary: We consider a (periodic) Schrödinger operator with a spectral gap, perturbed by a magnetic field of compact support. Here, it is our aim to produce examples where an eigenvalue branch inside the gap approaches a nonconstant periodic function as the coupling constant tends to infinity. The two cases where the total magnetic flux is zero or nonzero have to be treated differently. For comparison reasons, we include a brief discussion of monotonicity properties of eigenvalue branches in the case where the perturbation is given by an electric potential of compact support.
