We analyze, theoretically, a Fabry-Perot interferometer constructed from superimposed, chirped fiber Bragg gratings. Interference effects between the superimposed gratings play a large role in determining the exact positions of the FP resonances. We give formulae to determine the spatial position of the resonances of the system, and, in certain cases, the profile of their field intensity.
