Abstract
A wireless power transmission device for transmitting power from a power source to a load includes a three-dimensional source conductive element that is electrically coupled to the power source and that induces an alternating current therein. A first three-dimensional resonating conductive element surrounds the source conductive element, but is physically decoupled therefrom and resonates in response to the alternating current induced in the source conductive element. A second three-dimensional resonating conductive element is physically spaced apart from the first three-dimensional resonating conductive element and resonates in response to an oscillating field generated by the first three-dimensional resonating conductive element. A three-dimensional load conductive element is within the second three-dimensional resonating conductive element, but is physically decoupled therefrom. The three-dimensional load conductive element applies power to the load in response to resonation in the second three-dimensional resonating conductive element.
