A detailed model of the diffraction of plane and Gaussian beams on plane uniform phase Bragg gratings based on Kogelnik's theory of coupled waves is presented. The model describes reflecting gratings with arbitrary orientation in a plane-parallel plate taking into account spectral width and angular divergence of diffracted beams. Extra formulas for angular and spectral selectivity are derived. The model results are compared with transmitting grating, the results show that the diffraction efficiency of reflecting volume Bragg gratings (VBGs) is higher than that of transmitting VBGs for beams with Gaussian spectral profile or angular divergence.
