We combine high-finesse optical resonators and spatial-spectral interferometry to a highly phase-sensitive investigation technique for nonlinear light-matter interactions. We experimentally validate an ab initio model for the nonlinear response of a resonator housing a gas target, permitting the global optimization of intracavity conversion processes like high-order harmonic generation. We predict the feasibility of driving intracavity high-order harmonic generation far beyond intensity limitations observed in state-of-the-art systems by exploiting the intracavity nonlinearity to compress the pulses in time.
