Abstract:

Studies of spatiotemporal dynamical behavior in chemical systems were carried out. We have built on our expertise in addressable excitable media to develop and characterize particle-like waves that autonomously navigate and traverse obstacle-filled landscapes. Experimental investigations have been combined with theoretical and computational analyses in each project. The results of our studies are generally applicable, and our advances in designing and controlling spatiotemporal dynamical systems will be beneficial to the Department of Defense.
