Directory of technologies and resources pertaining to Tesla coils.
A Tesla coil is generally known as a category of disruptive discharge coils, named after their inventor, Nikola Tesla. Tesla actually experimented with a large variety of coils and configurations (for tansmissions and reception), so it is difficult to describe a specific mode of construction that will meet the wants of those who ask about "Tesla" coils. One common feature of Tesla coils is that they are all composed of coupled resonant electric circuits.

Electrum - The world's largest Tesla coil - Tesla coils have always held a special place in denoting the "mad" scientist, beloved by high-voltage hobbyists. However the world's largest existing Tesla coil was commissioned not as a work of science, nor as a movie prop, but as a work of art. Leyh, the co-creator of the Electrum, has plans to resurrect Tesla's original dream of a giant coil--times two. (Atlas Obscura [see links])

If He Starts Nodding Off, Try Another Million Volts - David Blaine, the magician and endurance artist, is ready for more pain. With the help of the Liberty Science Center, a chain-mail suit and an enormous array of Tesla electrical coils, he plans to stand atop a 20-foot-high pillar for 72 straight hours, without sleep or food, while being subjected to a million volts of electricity.

The result- the Nokia Lumia 925 was able to stabilize the noise in the signal and began charging. (Free Energy Blog; September 6, 2013)

High Frequency Patents of Nikola Tesla - The "Tesla Coil" was continually developed by Nikola Tesla in the 1890s. By the end of this period, it evolved into pulsed DC thermoelectric back emf voltage gain apparatus, with highly specific harmonic frequency tuning. Tesla's patents prove this. Ironically, this public explanation of free energy physics comes from a historian, Tim Harwood M.A., not a physicist. (PESWiki; Oct. 11, 2009)
