Turing patterns in the chlorine dioxide–iodine–malonic acid reaction with square spatial periodic forcing

Author affiliations

Abstract

We use the photosensitive chlorine dioxide–iodine–malonic acid reaction–diffusion system to study wavenumber locking of Turing patterns to two-dimensional “square” spatial forcing, implemented as orthogonal sets of bright bands projected onto the reaction medium. Various resonant structures emerge in a broad range of forcing wavelengths and amplitudes, including square lattices and superlattices, one-dimensional stripe patterns and oblique rectangular patterns. Numerical simulations using a model that incorporates additive two-dimensional spatially periodic forcing reproduce well the experimental observations.
