Description

Scroll waves are three-dimensional excitation waves, generally observed in many excitable media. The occurrence of electrical scroll waves in hearts causes some cardiac arrhythmia. Freely rotating scroll waves often drift and annihilate when they hit the boundary. In contrast, scroll waves pinned to unexcitable obstacles (e.g., blood vessel or scars) are discovered to appear last longer. The situations may be more complicated when the scroll waves are partially pinned with an obstacle. We present a successful method for initiating a partially pinned scroll wave in the excitable chemical media-the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction. The scroll wave gradually develops a cone-shaped structure because its pinned and freely moving parts have different dynamics.
