A new type of reflective hologram with both high angular and spectral selectivity is suggested. With novel design of crossed gratings inside the volume hologram, unusual angular selectivity is achieved via coupling of four waves. Analytic solution with spectral and angular detuning from Bragg regime is derived. The compensation between these two detuning forms an interesting figure of saddle shape.
