We observe breathing front dynamics which select three distinct types of bistable patterns in the 2:1 resonance regime of the periodically forced oscillatory Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction. We measure the curvature-driven shrinking of a circular domain R approximately t(1/2) at forcing frequencies below a specific value, and show that the fast time scale(More)
Resonance regions similar to the Arnol’d tongues found in single oscillator frequency locking are observed in experiments using a spatially extended periodically forced Belousov-Zhabotinsky system. We identify six distinct 2:1 subharmonic resonant patterns and describe them in terms of the positiondependent phase and magnitude of the oscillations. Some(More)
We have conducted experiments on a periodically inhibited oscillatory Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction–diffusion system in a regime in which the patterns oscillate at half the frequency of the forcing (the 2:1 resonance regime). The periodic perturbations of the photosensitive (ruthenium-catalyzed) reaction are made with light, which inhibits the(More)
