With these Tesla coils, you can light one led connected to a single wire
This project is based on the research of Nikolas Tesla. I have reproduced two flat Tesla coils, each topped with a sphere-shaped antenna and connected to the ground. The device is presented above in the patent filed by Tesla in 1900.
Design a scalar wave transmitter
The device produced is a transmitter / receiver which transfers energy by longitudinal waves, also called " scalar waves" page (in French).
Experimentation of an energy transfer with two Tesla coils
Energy is transferred from the left antenna to the right.
- The signal generator is connected to the right black coil (right antenna).
- On the 2 antennas, energy is transferred by induction between the black coil and the red coil.
- The two red coils are connected by a single wire
- Energy is transferred when the two antennas are in resonance
This experiment shows that the scalar waves pass through a Faraday cage
- When the receiver resonates, we see on this video that the left indicator light turns on while the right indicator gradually goes out.
- When I bring my hand closer to the sphere of the receiver, the led lights up gradually. The influence of my hand disturbs the resonance of the receiver.
- In the second video, despite the two metal cages, the left led receiver continues to work without being disturbed by Faraday's cages.

To go further with scalar waves
I developed this model from the research of Nikola Tesla and Professor Konstantin Meyl. Professor Meyl has been studying scalar waves since 1990. You will find his books, publications, videos and devices on his website www.meyl.eu
The behavior of scalar waves with a Faraday cage is described in his publications.
Prof. Meyl produced a demonstrator with a small electric boat that moves using wireless power transmission. The ground wire in the water is connected to the boat and to the secondary transmitter. The main transmitter is out of the water with the signal generator.
