We demonstrate four-port long-period gratings formed by winding an optical microfiber with another thinner microfiber. The surrounding thinner microfiber not only induces a strong refractive-index perturbation in the center microfiber, but also collects and leads out the light resonantly coupled from the fundamental mode to high-order modes, providing flexibility for applications as optical filters and sensors. The devices exhibit temperature sensitivity of 7.6 pm/°C, strain sensitivity of -10.6 pm/μ(epsilon) and refractive-index sensitivity of 2012.6 nm/RIU.
