The holographic recording characteristics of a photopolymer–nanoporous-glass composite are reported. An M/# of 3.2 is measured in this medium by angle multiplexing of a series of plane-wave holograms. In addition, the dimensional stability of the material is demonstrated by the negligible Bragg detuning of a set of angle-multiplexed holograms recorded with varying grating tilt angles and by the relative insensitivity of the detuning to changes in temperature.
