Experimental and numerical results for the topological edge mode. (a) Fabricated sample of the finite circuit chain containing 9.5 unit cells (19 nodes), with circuit parameters , , , , , and , corresponding to, , and . (b) Sorted eigenfrequencies of the finite circuit chain. Red circle represents the topological edge mode. (c) Imaginary part of the eigenvalue spectra of for the finite circuit chain. The isolated curve represents the edge mode. (d, e) Experimentally measured and numerically calculated impedance spectra of the finite circuit chain, respectively. Red curve indicates the impedance measured across the leftmost coupling capacitors. (f, g) Experimentally measured and numerically calculated impedance distributions of the finite circuit chain. Note that the impedance spectra in all experiments and simulations are measured across the each adjacent node (i.e., across each coupling capacitor).
