1. An inductor comprising:

  • a) a first conductor layer;

    b) a second conductor layer spaced apart from the first conductor layer, the first conductor layer and the second conductor layer being electrically conductive;

    c) an insulator layer positioned in the space between the first conductor layer and the second conductor layer;

    d) at least one connector electrically connecting the first conductor layer and the second conductor layer; and

    e) wherein when an electrical current is propagated within at least the first conductor layer, a magnetic flux is generated within the inductor; and

    f) wherein when a change in at least one of a frequency, a magnitude, or a waveform shape of the propagated electrical current occurs, an inductance is generated.
