1. A system configured to exchange energy wirelessly, comprising:

  • a structure configured to exchange the energy wirelessly via a coupling of evanescent waves, wherein the structure is electromagnetic (EM) and non-radiative, wherein the structure generates an EM near-field in response to receiving the energy; and

    an anisotropic metamaterial arranged within the EM near-field such that an amplitude of the evanescent waves is increased.
