„Marin Soljacic is a professor of Physics at MIT and the founder of wireless charging technology company WiTricity. WiTricity's EV charging solutions currently have charging rates from 3.6 to 11 kW, and the technology scales up to hundreds of kilowatts for heavy duty vehicles such as buses. Soljacic´s work in wireless energy transfer is related in spirit to the work of Nikola Tesla in the early 20th century, but it also has significant differences: unlike Tesla's long-range wireless energy transfer in Colorado, WiTricity focuses only on short-range transfer, and unlike Tesla coils which transfer power with electric fields the WiTricity uses coupling primarily via magnetic fields."
