We study the effect of recycled noise, generated by the superposition of a primary Gaussian noise source with a second component of constant delay, in a parameter region below the threshold of supercritical Hopf bifurcation, by focussing on the performance of noise induced oscillations and coherence resonance. For fixed noise intensity, the amplitude and signal-to-noise ratio of the oscillation show periodic dependences on the delay time. The optimal noise intensity for the occurrence of coherence resonance also shows a periodic dependence on the delay. A theoretical analysis based on the stochastic normal form theory is presented, which qualitatively reproduces the simulation results with good agreement. This work presents a possible strategy for controlling noise induced oscillations and coherence resonance by deliberately adjusting the parameters of the recycled noise.
