Photoinduced refractive-index gratings are shown to affect the differential phase modulation between the LP and LP11 modes copropagating within the core of a germanium-doped (Ge-doped) two-mode elliptical-core (e-core) fiber. The beat length of fibers containing such gratings is shown to vary as a function of strain applied to the fiber leading to a new type of weighted optical fiber sensor whose sensitivity varies as a function of length along the structure to which it is attached or embedded. This novel type of spatially-weighted distributed fiber sensor is shown experimentally to function as an efficient vibration mode filter by enhancing either the first or second mode of a thin cantilever beam. These results support future applications of spatially-weighted/distributed optical fiber sensors for the evaluation and control of vibrating structures. I.
