A peculiar bifurcation phenomenon in the diffraction spectra of volume holograms is investigated. A linear expansion model modulated by a random number was built to explain the phenomenon. In our model, a random number was first introduced to describe the random property of swelling or shrinking of the emulsion during the process after exposure. The calculated results show good consistency with the experimental observations.
