# Chimera and phase-cluster states in populations of coupled chemical oscillators

@article{Tinsley2012ChimeraAP, title={Chimera and phase-cluster states in populations of coupled chemical oscillators}, author={Mark R Tinsley and Simbarashe Nkomo and Kenneth Showalter}, journal={Nature Physics}, year={2012}, volume={8}, pages={662-665} }

Chimera states describing the stable coexistence of synchronous and incoherent dynamics have so far only been realized numerically. An experimental demonstration of these states in a network of discrete chemical oscillators reveals behaviour that differs from that predicted by existing phase-oscillator models.
