Experimental phase synchronization of chaos in a plasma discharge is studied using a phase variable lift technique (i.e., phase points separated by 2pi are not considered as the same). Real-time observation of synchronized and unsynchronized states is made possible through a real-time sampling procedure. Parameter space regions of synchronization and unsynchronization are identified, and a set of equations is suggested to model the real plasma circuit.
