 Doug's R-E Loop Article Page
That is done by coupling the output of the vertical antenna to the loop so that the voltage induced in the loop by the coupling is 90 degrees out of phase with the voltage the passing wave induces in the vertical antenna.
Loop antennas, when used at low frequencies, are subject to that effect because their size is aonly a fraction of a wavelength, and they pick up interference from a signal derived from the electric, rather than the magnetic, field.
When designing an active whip antenna, we considered the whip to be a voltage source with a high internal impedance requiring current amplification, and (to reduce attenuation due to a mismatch) we wanted the preamplifier also to have a high input impedance.

 Inductive coupling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In electronics, inductive coupling refers to the transfer of energy from one circuit component to another through a shared magnetic field.
An inductively coupled transponder comprises an electronic data carrying device, usually a single microchip, and a large coil that functions as an antenna.
The two devices may be physically contained in a single unit, as in the primary and secondary sides of a transformer, or may be separated as in the antennae on a transmitter and a receiver.

 Molecular Electronics
Because molecular electronics borrows most heavily from current technologies, in the past few years it has advanced to the point that many major semiconductor-manufacturing companies, including IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and LG (Korea), are launching their own research programs in molecular electronics.
How molecular orbitals align with the Fermi levels of electrodes, the coupling of molecular vibrations with charge transport through the molecule, and the nature of the molecule/electrode interface states are questions being addressed in various laboratories around the world.
In molecular-electronics research, molecules are used to yield the active and passive components (switches, sensors, diodes, resistors, LEDs, etc.) of electronic circuits or integrated circuits.

 IBM Research Almaden Research Center Science and Technology Molecular Electronics
The molecular electronics group at the IBM Almaden Research Center, like many other teams around the world, is investigating novel means of incorporating conjugated organic molecules into functional electronic nanoscale devices.
Among the issues which are being addressed in our program are: novel methods of patterning, including directed self-assembly, where the "seeds are planted" by soft lithographic techniques; biomimetic approaches to molecular assembly; and coupling chemistry to connect functional organic molecules to metal electrodes with minimum interface resistance.
Nevertheless, it is clear that physical and chemical principles apply to the continuing reduction in the size of electrical components, and that the ultimate limit lies at the length scale of atoms and molecules, namely about 1 nm.

 Purdue simulation to help merge molecules with silicon electronics
Molecular electronics could make it possible to manufacture hardware by "growing" circuits and devices in layers that may "self-assemble," similar to the growth of structures in living organisms.
One challenge, however, in developing molecular electronics is to better understand how electricity is conducted between molecules and silicon contacts connecting various devices in a circuit, said Geng-Chiau Liang, a postdoctoral research assistant in Purdue's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
"All traditional research in molecular electronics has focused on combining molecules with metal contacts, but we've been studying the interaction of molecules and silicon instead of metals because the computer industry is built on semiconductors, which is silicon."

In high voltage AC circuits an inductive coupling adapter converts the magnetic field around a conductor into a small current that can be easily read by a meter.
