The influence of the third-order nonlinearity of a medium containing a steady-state holographic grating on the grating properties is nvestigated theoretically. It is shown that the angular position and the value of diffraction efficiency maximum can be radically changed. When utilizing the grating in optical scheme, its characterisrics appeare to behave in a jump-like way.1 Nowadays holographic volume phase gratings (HVPG) are widely used as selective elements in laser systems, where they are irradiated by intense laser radiation.l It is of particular interest to have a clear understanding of HIWG characteristics changes caused by the nonlinear optical properties of the HVPG storage medium. Thus the purpose of our analysis is to investigate the influence of the third-order nonlinearity in a HVPG storage medium with a local response on the HVPG diffraction characteristics.
