The Litz can add some benefit for the HF coils your running now.  If you get into lower frequencies (and / or) Ferro-cores and intend to tune the circuit as I'm suggesting;  then you wouldn't really need litz as Fo is low.   If you wanted an advantage still of parallel wires, you could use stranded audio or something;  since it's diameter is around 20Khz and under for skin. 
  However, we still need a high inductance so solid core will offer the highest there.  If someone used a high enough permeability core;  then you could probably do stranded with a reasonable length.  For air though, I might stay with tight wound solid core. 

  In general, dampening, coupling and lower Fo are counter-intuitive;  however with this circuit, if tuned correctly, these are beneficial / required to a larger part.  Of course with a ferro-core you can get too much coupling though and have saturation or loss issues.  On the air side, the trick will be high inductance for low Fo. 

Hope this helps,
Thanks, PB

Also, I uploaded some more scope shots, since I did such a bad job the first time.  I got more shots and actually got what Stephan asked this time ;).  Hopefully I show everything from all the places.  Also, I show duty cycle and frequency with my meter.  Finally I zoom in on the ring down oscillation, which I believe to be from a Junction interaction with the transistor as I spoke of.

Seems, the only thing varying is duty cycle.  Should this then be considered more of a PWM???  Maybe I need to rename the design to SJ-PWM or something?
Thoughts anyone?

Thanks as always,

wow! i wonder if this circuit could be made into a portable laptop/hand phone charger

On my way, I suppose I should add a note; for those who may do this.....

  There May very well be discrepancies in drawings and videos from what specifically was used, of course.  This could be improper numbers, inversions, reversions, P/N's etc.  I'm sure those skilled in circuits know what may possibly not look correct and could very well be, in certain cases, what You may want.

 If someone does attempt this be sure, if needed, to correct any Obvious" discrepancies to get the results Your looking for ;).

Adieu, PB

I've been watching your videos on yt.  Quite impressive.  I left you a couple of comments- one just a minute ago regarding what I describe below.   Perhaps it's a better idea to discuss this idea here.
As you know many have been experimenting with the ultra efficient lighting circuits but yours seems to stand out. 

I've suggested repeatedly, to no avail, that the light and heat output from these experiments can be used to generate electricity.  This may or may not be a good idea, I don't know.  It's been knocked down by a few and it's been suggested that it's a good idea by others yet no one has tried it to any degree that I'm aware of.  Granted solar cells and peltier devices are not efficient but your circuit is.  It puts out a great deal of light and probably heat too with little input power.  Therefore I suggest that you build a box lined with solar cells on the inside and lined with peltier devices on the outside to generate electricity from the light and heat you so efficiently provide.  Perhaps you will be surprised and approach or exceed unity with this configuration.  One thing that may contribute to success is having the correct light wave frequency output matched optimally to the solar cells.  In other words the solars will perform better with the correct light wave frequency.  What that is I don't know but perhaps lights with "natural light" output would work best. Additionally it will heat up inside so the box might have to be vented and peltiers may be useful in converting that heat to electricity as well.

I made a video Sunday about this very subject because of my frustration.  Certainly I should shut up and just do it myself.  Right?  Well I'm involved in my own project that is off topic and you like many others experimenting in this area are configured for this already and need only to take the next step.  If I can't find any takers my frustration may lead to me experimenting in this area because it fascinates me so much.  But given that one of my personality defects  :-[ doesn't allow me to have more than one thing going on at a time I continue to suggest it to successful experimenters in this area.

The video that I made Sunday isn't exclusively about ultra efficient lighting researchers not "doing what I ask"  :( , it's about experimentation in alternative energy and the narrow focus that the experimenters have.  I describe how systems that are built and tested often have multiple outputs that aren't fully exploited.  Outputs often are in multiple frequency ranges, ranging from audio to light and all points between.  In one of my own experiments running my pulse motor I generate electricity from what I called a resonator.  The motor I built has a 120db output with a frequency range from 1kHz and it's harmonics to at least 15kHz.  So I built a resonator from a pvc tube and piezo electric speaker and was able to light two led's.   8) Whooo hooo.  Right?  Well much more can be done with this but I have a greater goal that I won't elaborate about here.  The point is that I tried to harness that energy and make use of it.  I also have heat output but that's another story.  So the heat and vibration I experience can be considered waste or as an opportunity.  I can spend my time trying to eliminate it or I can try to utilize it.
Your intent may be entirely different than what I suggest.  That is, I suspect you want light for cheap and that's cool but I see it as an opportunity to generate electricity for other use.  Perhaps I'm wrong.  :-\

Hope this helps in your endeavor.  I will stay tuned to your channel in hopes of further developments.  I'm not a big fan of the forums so you probably won't see much of me here.
