Abstract

Laboratory experiment was performed to study the transition from a period-1 spiral wave to a period-2 spiral wave and the subsequent bifurcations of the underlying line defects. It was found that the dynamics of the line defects in this study are far richer than the ones revealed in previous model studies. Additional experiments employing a "one-dimensional fed gel reactor" was used to examine further this observation. Evidence was obtained that it is quite unlikely that there are hidden three-dimensional structures rendering the observed line defects.
