This paper reports a coaxial cable Bragg grating (CCBG) fabricated by drilling holes into the cable at periodic distances along the axial direction. Resonances were observed at discrete frequencies in both transmission and reflection spectra. The analogy of the CCBG with a fiber Bragg grating is shown. The grating was tested for the potential application as a strain-sensing device.
