Abstract

We investigate theoretically the existence of bulk and surface discrete breathers in a one-dimensional magnetic metamaterial comprised of a periodic binary array of split-ring resonators; the two types of resonators used have different resonant frequencies caused by unequal slit sizes. We use the rotating-wave approximation and construct several types of breather excitations both for the energy-conserving as well as dissipative-driven case; we corroborate these approximate results trough numerically exact computations. We demonstrate that discrete breathers can appear spontaneously in the dissipative-driven system as a result of a fundamental instability.
