In this paper, we consider a parametrically driven nanoscale device modelled by discrete nonlinear Schrodinger equation. To determine the stability of fundamental dark solitons, analytical and numerical calculations are performed. We show that a parametric driving can change the stability of dark solitons. Stability windows of fundamental dark solitons are presented and stability approximations are derived using perturbation

To examine the stability of X n , we introduce the linearization ansatz

appears in many applications [8]. The same equation also applies to the study of discrete modulation instability in parametrically driven optical lattice [9]. The long bosonic Josephson junctions and Bose-Einstein condensates trapped Optical lattices are also studied using same equation [10,11].

In this paper we examine the condition for stability of fundamental dark soliton in defocusing PDNLSE.

For small C, the perturbation theory is used, followed by numerical computations in MATLAB.

    Using NewtonRaphson method, we have numerically solved the static equation (2), and analyzed the stability of the numerical solution by solving the eigenvalue problem (4). We consider 0.9 in the model.

    Figure 1 provides a full description of the dynamics of the parametrically driven DNLS model regarding the intervals of stability/instability of the model. Analytical prediction for the stability range as obtained by the conditions of collision of the phase mode eigenfrequency with the continuous spectrum from Eqs. (9)-(10).

    Figure 2,3 illustrate the typical instability scenario for different values of parametric drives and coupling constant C . Where the left panels present the structure of just before the collision (stable) whereas the right panels represent just after the collision (unstable).

  2. Conclusions

In this paper, we have considered a parametrically driven nanoelectromechanical system which is modeled by DNLS. The stability of fundamental dark solitons is determined using perturbative analysis, which is followed by numerical computations in MATLAB. We have shown that the presence of parametric driving can change the stability of governed model. It destabilizes the dark soliton. We have
