Abstract

Triplet synchrony is an interesting state when the phases and the frequencies of three coupled oscillators fulfill the conditions of a triplet locking, whereas every pair of systems remains asynchronous. Experimental observation of triplet synchrony is firstly realized in three coupled nonidentical mechanical metronomes. A more direct method based on the phase diagram is proposed to observe and determine triplet synchronization. Our results show that the stable triplet synchrony is observed in several intervals of the parameter space. Moreover, the experimental results are verified according to the theoretical model of the coupled metronomes. The outcomes are useful to understand the inner regimes of collective dynamics in coupled oscillators.
