The method proposed earlier by one of the authors to analyze quantitatively the wavelength- and intensity-dependence of the light irradiation effect on chemical oscillators is critically re-examined. Its application for analyzing the effect of stationary light illumination on the Belousov-Zhabotinsky and related minimal-oscillator systems is discussed in detail to explore the primary photochemical process and subsequent reactions of the key intermediates responsible for the photo-response. Some hints are given for possible future developments for the photo-control of chemical oscillators together with a description of preliminary results of experiments being under way in our laboratory.
