Paper Abstract

A Fabry-Perot etalon, consisting of two π phase shifted reflecting volume Bragg gratings, is presented. These gratings are obtained as a moiré pattern resulting from sequential recording of interference patterns with different periods in photo-thermo-refractive glass and called moiré volume Bragg gratings (MVBGs). A detailed investigation of the fundamental operating principles and measurement techniques for phase shifted gratings is shown. Experimental results demonstrating a MVBG with a 15 pm bandwidth and 90% transmission at resonance are presented. The use of the MVBG for longitudinal mode selection in a laser resonator is shown.
