Motivated by experimental observations in the light-sensitive Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction and subsequent numerical works, we discuss period-doubling bifurcations of spiral waves and other coherent structures. We report on explanations of the observed phenomena which involve a detailed analysis of spectra, and of the associated eigenfunctions, of defects on bounded and unbounded domains.
