A thermoacoustic chaotic oscillator is a fluid system that presents thermally induced chaotic oscillations of a gas column. This study experimentally reports a bifurcation diagram when two thermoacoustic chaotic oscillators are dissipatively coupled to each other. The two-parameter bifurcation diagram is constructed by varying the frequency mismatch and the coupling strength. Complete chaos synchronization is observed in the region with a frequency mismatch of less than 1% of the uncoupled oscillator. In other regions, synchronization between quasiperiodic oscillations and that between limit-cycle oscillations and amplitude death are observed as well as asynchronous states.
