Convective and Absolute Eckhaus Instability Leading to Modulated Waves in a Finite Box

Abstract

We report experimental study of the secondary modulational instability of a one-dimensional nonlinear traveling wave in a long bounded channel. Two qualitatively different instability regimes involving fronts of spatio-temporal defects are linked to the convective and absolute nature of the instability. Both transitions appear to be subcritical. The spatio-temporal defects control the global mode structure.
