Inductive Coupling/Tesla Effect

  1. Mar 29, 2009 #1
    Hi, first post, so for a side project for my modern physics class I am making a contraption that would transfer electricity without wires(wireless). So I have a function generator(wth a max frequency gen of 99,999 hertz) connected in parallel with a capacitor and a coil(Transmitting coil). I have a second coil(receiving coil) that is connected in parallel with a capacitor and an L.E.D.

    So the contraption works, if the receiving coil is in the actual transmitting coil. How can i propagate the electromagnetic waves outwards, not inwards?
