Spatially periodic patterns succeed active phase separation — •Lisa Rapp, Fabian Bergmann, and Walter Zimmermann — Theoretische Physik I, Universität Bayreuth, 95440 Bayreuth
We investigate a model equation for a conserved order-parameter field that covers as special cases the conserved Swift-Hohenberg model and the extended Cahn-Hilliard model for active phase separation. This model shows a primary bifurcation from a homogeneous state to large-scale phase separation - as typical for active phase separation [1,2]. We show here that with increasing distance from the primary bifurcation, however, a novel secondary bifurcation to spatially periodic patterns occurs. We explore these secondary periodic patterns in more detail including hysteresis and bistability/coexistence of patterns.
