Before everyone goes off the deep end, they should read the paper here:http://arxiv.org/ftp/physics/papers/0611/0611063.pdf
A quote from the introduction:
"Radiative modes of omni-directional antennas (which work very well for information transfer) are not suitable for such energy transfer, because a vast majority of energy is wasted into free space. Directed radiation modes, using lasers or highly-directional antennas, can be efficiently used for energy transfer, even for long distances (transfer distance LTRANS»LDEV, where LDEV is the characteristic size of the device), but require existence of an uninterruptible line-of-sight and a complicated tracking system in the case of mobile objects."
They are trying to avoid radiation of any radio waves. I haven't read the paper through yet, so I don't know how to build an antenna that only couples to other antennas through evanescent wave coupling, but this is what they seem to be doing.
They've been doing this with optical fiber for years: take a fiber which keeps all of the waves propagating inside of it, right? Total internal reflection happens at the outside of the fiber, keeping the light beam in the fiber.
However, if you bring another fiber *NEAR* the first one, light from one fiber can *tunnel* into the other....the probability of a photon jumping the gap between the fibers is very, very small, and if the second fiber weren't present, it would be ZERO. It also goes down a great deal as you increase the distance... tunneling is a quantum effect... no electromagnetic waves actually travel in the space between the fibers!
What I don't know is if you can tunnel between the 10MHz charger and your 10MHz dipole... let me read the paper and I'll get back to you.
What I do know is that tunneling does NOT launch electromagnetic waves into free space.
