Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate bursting behavior in a nonlinear microelectromechanical (MEMS) resonator that creates a frequency comb in the corresponding spectral response. The bursting behavior occurs for a single driving tone applied to the resonator. The bursting behavior arises from the non-linear analog of “level anti-crossing” in a 1:3 internal resonance that can efficiently transfer energy between two modes of a resonator at low excitation amplitudes. The internal resonance creates a region in parameter space where stable oscillations do not exist, resulting in a forbidden zone of operation.
