The Phenomenon of Frequency Pulling, Synchronization and Cessation of Self-oscillations of the Briggs – Rauscher Reaction Under Periodic Light Irradiation
2018, Vol. 14, no. 2, pp. 209-216
This paper explores the phenomenon of synchronization of concentration self-oscillations of the Briggs – Rauscher reaction under external periodic exposure to white light. A high sensitivity of the self-oscillating reaction regime to periodic light irradiation is shown. The paper presents the dependence of the synchronization band on light power, establishes the limiting values of external light irradiation power at which self-oscillations “go off”. The 0.04–0.1 Hz synchronization range of concentration oscillations under external light irradiation is determined. The phenomenon of frequency pulling of concentration oscillations occurred under external light irradiation with frequencies ranging from 0.029 to 0.039 Hz before synchronization and from 0.1 to 0.14 Hz after synchronization. It was established that, as the power of radiation from an external source was increased, the range of synchronization shifted to the low-frequency region of concentration oscillations, while the width of the range changed only slightly. When the luminous flux from the illumination source was less than 250 lm, no synchronization of the self-oscillating reaction regime arose, and when the luminous flux from the source was more than 5000 lm, the self-oscillatory process of the Briggs – Rauscher reaction ceased.
