The diffraction properties of fixed volume gratings, including the effect of additional photorefractive energy coupling between the incident wave and the diffracted wave, are considered. Both transmission gratings and reflection gratings are treated. Analytical solutions for phase gratings are derived, and numerical solutions for absorption gratings are also obtained. The results are presented and discussed.
