We report on the optical and sensor performance characteristics of meter long continuous twisted multicore optical fiber gratings. We describe a method to analyze the optical performance of all the cores in the multicore array. We also report on the sensitivity of our arrays to local changes such as bend and twist. Our analysis provides guidance for the proper operating range of multicore fiber sensing arrays.
