Abstract In this review, a surgey of the evidence for the appearance in volume holography of certain anomalous effects (akin to the Borrmann effect in x-ray crystallography) is conducted, with reference to both experimental observations and theoretical models. The main part of the paper is devoted to the application of a recently-developed two-dimensional coupled-wave theory (an extension of Kogelnik's one-dimensional theory) to the modelling of such anomalous phenomena. Extensive calculations based upon this theory, for the case of Gaussian wave incidence on a uniform mixed grating for various boundary conditions, are presented in a unified two-dimensional description of Borrmann-like effects in volume holography. In particular, certain qualitative predictions of the dynamical theory of x-ray diffraction are expressed quantitatively in the two-dimensional theory.
