Summary: 
Press-induced long-period fiber gratings exhibiting strong core-to-cladding mode coupling were formed in photonic crystal fiber. Only one resonance peak was observed over a 600 nm spectral range and the resonant wavelength was tuned over the whole range by tilting a groove plate before pressing the fiber. The resonant wavelength decreased with increasing periodicity of the grating, which was opposite to the trend of the step-index conventional optical fiber. Meanwhile, the resonant wavelength increased with increasing the ambient refractive index, which was also opposite to that of the conventional optical fiber.
