May I suggest an extension or variation of ND's initial experiment (post 311) to attempt electrostatic excitation of a coil, however in this approach with electrostatic plates at the 1/4 wave points driven out of phase.
L2 can also be treated as a transmission line with appropriate terminations, resistive, capacitive, open or shorted line. We know that in a transmission line containing one complete wave, there are two nodes where voltage peaks of opposite polarity, we wish to drive the voltage nodes.
L2 can also be wound as a toroid instead of linear coil, SM style.

Just because it has a patent application or is patented does not always mean it really works.
