The spectral properties of long period fiber gratings (LPFG) are modified when twisting is applied. Herein, results of applying torsion to UV-induced LPFGs are presented for comparing with others which have already been presented in literature and where the LPFGs are fabricated using different techniques. Both, the resonant wavelength and the peak attenuation of the resonance, have similar behaviors to those obtained by other authors. However, in spite of the fact that the values of sensitivity to twist rate are sensibly lower in the case of UV-LPFGs, its bigger mechanical strength lets them be subjected to higher twist rates, which could be useful in determinate applications.
