Peter B Zieve, Samuel O Smith: Electromagnetic repulsion system for removing contaminants such as ice from the surfaces of aircraft and other objects. Electroimpact, Jensen & Puntigam, September 1, 1992: US05143325 (36 worldwide citation)

The deicing system includes a plurality of relatively thin, flat coils positioned between an aircraft surface and an outer sheet. If the aircraft surface is electrically conducting such as aluminum, such that eddy currents may be established therein, then the outer sheet is resistant to eddy current ...
