Convective and periodic motion driven by a chemical wave
The generation of convective flow by a chemical wave was studied experimentally on a mm-sized droplet of Belousov–Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction medium. A propagating chemical wave causes a transientExpand

Design and testing of a compact non-orthogonal two-axis Lloyd's mirror interferometer for fabrication of large-area two-dimensional scale gratings
Abstract A compact and stable two-axis Lloyd’s mirror interferometer based on a new non-orthogonal type of mirror-substrate assembly is designed for fabrication of 100 mm × 100 mm large-areaExpand

Size-Dependent Switching of the Spatiotemporal Structure between a Traveling Wave and Global Rhythm
The spatiotemporal chemical structure in the Belousov−Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction was studied using spherical beads of ion-exchange resin doped with ferroin by changing the size of the beads. Above anExpand

Size-Dependent Belousov-Zhabotinsky Oscillation in Small Beads
We examined chemical oscillations in the Belousov−Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction with spherical ion-exchange resin beads (radius:  0.1−0.4 mm) loaded with a cationic catalyst, ferroin, in which noExpand

Influences of misalignment errors of optical components in an orthogonal two-axis Lloyd's mirror interferometer.
This paper presents a detailed analysis on the influence of misalignment errors of optical components in an orthogonal two-axis Lloyd's mirror interferometer, which can fabricate two-dimensionalExpand

Synchronization of electrically induced calcium firings in self-assembled cardiac cells.
We study the adaptive changes of a population of cells responding to external stimulus. Two-dimensionally distributed cardiac cells were homogeneously subjected to periodic electrical stimulus andExpand

Slowing and Stopping of Chemical Waves in a Narrowing Canal
The propagation of a chemical wave in a narrow, cone-shaped glass capillary was investigated. When a chemical wave propagates from the wider end to the narrower end, it slows, stops, and thenExpand

Three-axis vibration measurement by using a grating-interferometric vibrometer
Abstract Three-axis vibration measurement of the linear air-bearing stage demonstrated by utilizing the method of the multi-axis laser interferometer is discussed. In order to detect the X-Y-ZExpand

Localized Domains in a Periodically Forced Cardiac Monolayer(Oscillation, Chaos and Network Dynamics in Nonlinear Science)
We present experimental results of pattern formation in a forced system of coupled cellular oscillators. The response of spatially distributed cultured cardiac cells to a periodic forcing ofExpand
