Subject of study. A holographic system with a tunable convergence angle of two interfering light beams, based on a beam­splitting cube and designed for writing diffraction gratings, is investigated analytically. The initial light beam is introduced into the cube by means of a movable mirror, which performed both linear and angular displacement, due to which the convergence angle is tuned. For the combined movement of the movable mirror, a lever mechanism is used, based on an inclined guide. Aim of study. The aim of study is to find such a way of matching of both displacements of the movable mirror, in which the interference grating, created in the plane of complete mutual overlap of converging beams, would turn out to be immobile when the convergence angle is tuned. Method. The analysis of the path of light beams in the system was carried out within the framework of geometric optics. Main results. It was found that to fix the spatial position of the interference grating, the contact profile of the guide must be curvilinear. The exact functional dependence of the envelope of this profile is derived, and the tuning characteristics are calculated depending on the position of the photosensitive sample relative to the beam­splitting cube. Practical significance. Such a design of the studied holographic system opens up the possibility of using light beams of any diameter without system correction.
