In this paper, the optical properties of broadband Lippmann-Bragg volume holographic mirrors are analyzed. These mirrors have a wavelength bandwidth much higher than their Bragg bandwidth, which is a result of Kogelnik's theory. While Kogelnik's model assumes uniform distribution of the distance between Bragg planes as a function of the vertical coordinate, the experimental results presented in this paper strongly demonstrate that Kogelnik's theory is not valid in the case of broadband Lippmann-Bragg volume holographic mirrors.
