The paper investigates the angular dependence of diffraction efficiency of a dynamic hologram in a dye solution generated by a three- and four-level term scheme, taking into account the reference wave divergence. An expression is obtained that relates the band width of angles of a dynamic hologram to its optimal thickness and the reference wave angular divergence, the limits of the expression application are determined.
