Abstract

We discuss a simple beam interference approximation method for deriving the angular selectivity of diffraction in weakly modulated volume holographic gratings. The results obtained using the multiple beam interference model agree qualitatively with the results obtained from a physical optics treatment of the coupled-wave theory for volume holographic gratings.
