Surface magnetoinductive breathers in two-dimensional magnetic metamaterials

Eleftheriou, Maria; Lazarides, Nikos; Tsironis, George P; Kivshar, Yuri


We study discrete surface breathers in two-dimensional lattices of inductively coupled split-ring resonators with capacitive nonlinearity. We consider both conservative (Hamiltonian) and analyze the properties of the modes localized in space and periodic in time (discrete breathers) located in the corners and on the edges of the lattice. We find that surface breathers in the Hamiltonian systems have lower energy than their bulk counterparts and they are generally more stable.
