"EM transparent but conductive"
Easy - there's all manner of conductive transparent films.. Indium Tin
Oxide (ITO) is used on LCD displays and heated windshields, for
instance. A thin aluminum layer is conductive and "mostly" transparent
But you don't want a "conductive tube", per se.
Since the coupling between primary and secondary is magnetic, it would
be pretty easy to have a conductive surface that doesn't form a ring,
and passes the magnetic field.
Imagine a set of vertical stripes or wires, for instance - it won't
support the current flow "around" the secondary, but will support flow
"along" the secondary (think transformer laminations for a magnetic
But, you want it to be conductive, but not a *conductor* or it will
perturb the field between top load and ground.
Ok, now you've got my attention.

instead of an open ring or even a closed ring, how about an EM transparent
but conductive "curtain" to protect the secondary?
I was thinking something on the lines of Carbon fiber fabric held in place
with some type of plastic ring assembly...
just a thought :)
