Abstract

We carry out a detailed bifurcation analysis for a common class of electrostatically driven nanowires in a multiphysics model. A finding is that the nanoscale system can exhibit distinct chaotic states: chaos with symmetry breaking and extensive chaos possessing the full symmetry of the system. Potential applications such as nanoscale random number generator and controlling extensive chaos to achieve desirable performance are articulated.
