We show that supercontinuum generation in a fiber containing a Bragg grating exhibits > lox enhancement near the Bragg resonance wavelength. We also show that the grating dispersion exceeds the waveguide dispersion over a bandwidth far in excess of its photonic hand gap. The observed enhancement is consistent with nonlinear Schrödinger equation simulations of the supercontinuum formation that combine grating and waveguide dispersion.
