We report the results of an experimental investigation of the diffractive properties of a thick index grating embedded in a Fabry–Perot resonator, the so-called intracavity Bragg grating. We compare the performance of this device with that of a bare Bragg grating with same thickness and the same index modulation and establish the improvement in performance with the resonator. The experimental data also fit predictions calculated from a theoretical model.
