Allegedly nasa tried it too to some success.
Here's a link to an article about the test with links to the peer reviewed paper and inventors website at the bottom.
I wonder how well it would scale up...
I bet the degree of precision of the resonant cavity well have allot to do with improving efficiency, just a hunch.
BTW as far as Allaroundyou's concerns about needing an atmosphere, I believe NASA tested it in a vacuum chamber successfully.
