    We report on the observation of noise-free stochastic resonance in an externally driven diode resonator close to an interior crisis. At sufficiently high excitation amplitudes the diode resonator shows a strange attractor which after the collision with an unstable period-three orbit exhibits crisis-induced intermittency. In the intermittency regime the system jumps between the previously stable chaotic attractor and the phase space region which has been made accessible by the crisis. This random process can be used to amplify a weak periodic signal through the mechanism of stochastic resonance. In contrast to conventional stochastic resonance no external noise is needed. The chaotic intrinsic dynamics plays the role of the stochastic forcing. Our data obtained from the diode resonator are compared with numerical simulations of the logistic map where a similar crisis-induced intermittency is observed.© 2008 The American Physical Society
