In this paper, the possibility of observing strange attractors in an electronic circuit including a nonlinear ferroelectric component has been investigated. The ferroelectric constitutes the medium interposed between the two plates of a capacitor. A circuit including the nonlinearity of the ferroelectric has been designed, while the parameters have been found by performing numerical integration with respect to different values of them. The circuit has been realized on a discrete components board. Experimental results, showing that for a suitable range of parameters a chaotic attractor emerges, are reported.

Abstract

In this paper, the possibility of observing strange attractors in an electronic circuit including a nonlinear ferroelectric component has been investigated. The ferroelectric constitutes the medium interposed between the two plates of a capacitor. A circuit including the nonlinearity of the ferroelectric has been designed, while the parameters have been found by performing numerical integration with respect to different values of them. The circuit has been realized on a discrete components board. Experimental results, showing that for a suitable range of parameters a chaotic attractor emerges, are reported.
