Summary

A single diode resonator system is a nonlinear circuit consisting of a series combination of a resistance, inductance and a p-n junction diode. Driven single diode resonator systems experimentally show the period-doubling route to chaos, while driven coupled diode resonator systems show the quasi-periodic route to chaos. We report f(α) spectra1,2 calculated from experimental data3,4 and model calculations5 for driven diode resonator systems at transitions to chaos. The method used to obtain f(α) has no “free” adjustable parameters.
