Two types of anisotropic collinear diffractions of light on a diffraction grating are theoretically investigated, including that where the light is scattered forward in the direction of the incident radiation and that where the light is scattered backward in the direction toward the incident radiation. For both types, two-dimensional transfer functions are calculated, and the character of their transformation upon variation of the light wavelength and the period of the diffraction grating is analyzed. The dependence of the integrated diffraction efficiency and transmission band of diffraction filters on the divergence angle of the light beam is studied.
