@article{Guoxiang1995SolitonEI, title={Soliton excitations in a diatomic lattice with nonlinear on-site potential}, author={Huang Guo-xiang}, journal={Acta Physica Sinica (overseas Edition)}, year={1995}, volume={4}, pages={489-499} }

We consider the soliton excitations in a diatomic chain with nonlinear on-site potential based on a quasi-discreteness approximation. Different from the theoretical approach developed before, our method is valid in the whole Brillouin zone of phonons. The gap solitons observed recently in a nonlinear diatomic pendulum lattice can be well explained qualitatively. It is also shown that if the wave number of the carrier wave is near the edge of the Brillouin zone, the results coinside with that of…

In the limit when the gap disappears, the gap solitons do not exist but instead there exist localized structures of a distinct type created by the nonlinearity-induced symmetry breaking between two equivalent eigenmodes of the lattice, the so-called self-supporting gapsolitons.

It is shown that these excitations represent themselves as a complicated combination of solitons of the acoustic and quasioptical branches of the spectrum for systems having two interacting fields with the same nonlinearity but with different dispersion signs.
