Abstract

This work focuses on the production of both stationary and traveling intrinsic localized modes (ILMs), also known as discrete breathers, in two closely related electrical lattices; we demonstrate experimentally that the interplay between these two ILM types can be utilized for the purpose of spatial control. We describe a novel mechanism that is responsible for the motion of driven ILMs in this system, and quantify this effect by modeling in some detail the electrical components comprising the lattice.
