Light diffraction by thick phase sinusoidal holographic grating in the case of different refractive indices inside and outside of the grating is studied analytically. Singular perturbation method is used to solve Maxwell's equations taking into account strict boundary conditions. As a result closed form expressions for both transmitted and reflected waves are received and analyzed. The dependence of the phase of the diffracted waves upon grating strength is discovered. Possible practical applications of gratings with multiple internal reflections of diffraction orders on boundary surfaces are discussed.
