Re: About wireless energy transfer
Original poster: westland <westland@xxxxxx>
Soljacic has actually gotten a lot of publicity from this work ... he
is Serbian, and in interviews has said that he was very interested in
revisiting Nicola Tesla's work in wireless communication and energy
transfer. I had read somewhere that the modeling for the phenomenon
that they are investigating is mathematically equivalent to quantum
tunneling (a portion of the probability density for the wave equation
that ends up on the other side of a barrier). I think there is a
wikipedia write up on this somewhere

There is a note in the Scientific American magazine about recent
research on wireless energy transfer:
With a link to a paper:
Antonio Carlos M. de Queiroz"
Did you find anything in that paper which was new other than the
fancy simulations and graphics and obscure terminology? I read it
when it first came out and seems to me those guys think they're the
first ones to discover that two resonant circuits tuned to the same
frequency will couple energy and that the higher the Q the better the coupling?
They don't seem to claim anything unreasonable in the way of
efficiency. Although they mention a Tesla patent (Wardenclyffe
transmitter with no receiver mentioned) I don't think they are at
all aware of his World Power System patents or what he was doing at
Colorado Springs over 100 years ago. His big "primary around the
room" with tuned coils inside it pretty well represents their
proposed laptop computer charging setup.
I'd be interested in your comments as the paper annoyed me and I
was surprised it got published.
