Abstract

Experimental evidence of intrinsic localized modes (ILMs) in microelectromechanical oscillator arrays has been reported recently. In this paper, we carry out a detailed analysis of a new mechanism for ILMs in typical experimental settings; that is, spatiotemporal chaos is ubiquitous and it provides a natural platform for actual realization of various ILMs through frequency control. We find that unstable periodic orbits associated with ILMs are pivotal for spatiotemporal chaos to arise and these orbits are the keys to stabilizing ILMs by frequency modulation.
