This paper describes a sheet-like transmission line for constructing a short-range wireless communication system using flexible materials such as clothing. As a new application of wireless communications, it is desired to construct a Personal Area Network (PAN) and a sensor network with a short distance communication area of about 1 m to 2 m. For such applications, a waveguide of a new structure is required which can exchange information at an arbitrary place on the waveguide, which has a flexible structure and limits the area for wireless communication. Therefore, by disposing the microstrip type resonators two-dimensionally with a two-layer structure and electromagnetically strongly coupling the resonators, the electromagnetic waves are confined well within the transmission line, and the antenna of the wireless device resonator is arranged. Furthermore, by constructing this transmission line with a sheet-like flexible wearable material, the transmission of both information and power can be performed through a thin flexible transmission line for the wearable network.
