We study theoretically the collective modes of a two-component Fermi gas with attractive interactions in a quasi-one-dimensional harmonic trap. We focus on an imbalanced gas in the Fulde-Ferrell-Larkin-Ovchinnikov (FFLO) phase. Using a mean-field theory, we study the response of the ground state to time-dependent potentials. For potentials with short wavelengths, we find dramatic signatures in the large-scale response of the gas which are characteristic of the FFLO phase. This response provides an effective way to detect the FFLO state in experiments.
