1. A system, comprising:

  • a source resonator having a Q-factor Q1 and a characteristic size x1, coupled to a power generator with direct electrical connections; and

    a second resonator having a Q-factor Q2 and a characteristic size x2, coupled to a load with direct electrical connections, and located a distance D from the source resonator, wherein the source resonator and the second resonator are coupled to exchange energy wirelessly among the source resonator and the second resonator in order to transmit power from the power generator to the load, and wherein √

    {square root over (Q1Q2)} is greater than 100.
