This paper extends and generalises the rigorous coupled-wave method (for volume-phase holograms), in order to study multiplexed (fanout) gratings recorded in the same volume. The theory is equally applicable to transmission and reflection gratings replayed with TE polarised light and is consistent with published experimental data. Reflection fan-out holograms are shown to be more efficient and have a higher replay fidelity than their transmission counterparts. © IEE, 1998.
