We consider physical principles of realizing the Bragg regime of one-, two-, and three-phonon scattering of light in optically anisotropic crystals under specially elaborated conditions. The exact and closed analytical models for describing these regimes are developed. The performed analysis reveals an opportunity of realizing 100% efficiency of light scattering in these regimes, and computer simulations illustrate the obtained results. Possible applications lie in the fields of creating large aperture spatial modulators of light. In connection with this, the problems of optimizing the bandwidths and resolution of such modulators are studied.
