In 1898 Tesla's creativity in the field of high frequencies was at its peak. From his initial ideas in 1890 and his first, pioneering steps, he had worked with such intensity that many of the inventions and discoveries, which he had given the world by this time, have remained unsurpassed to this day.

Description

Even the loss of his laboratory on Fifth Avenue in 1895, did not hold him back for long. He soon resumed his experiments in a new laboratory, on Houston Street, applying them with unflagging energy. Tesla's polyphase system essentially solved the problem of generating, transmitting and utilization of electrical power. When he started working on high frequencies, he almost immediately began to perceive their vast possibilities for wireless transmission of "intelligible signals and perhaps power". He worked on the practical development of his first ideas of 1891-1893 at such a rate that by 1897 he had already patented a system for wireless transmission of power and an apparatus utilizing this system. During the ceremonial opening of the hydroelectric power plant on Niagara, at a time when the world was only just coming around to Tesla's polyphase system, which for the first time in history enabled the transfer of electrical power over distance, he said: "In fact, progress in this field has given me fresh hope that I shall see the fulfillment of one of my fondest dreams; namely, the transmission of power from station to station without the employment of any connecting wires." Always true to the principle that ideas must be experimentally verified, Tesla set about building powerful high-frequency generators and making experiments in wireless power transmission.
