This paper presents the basic characteristics of the wireless power transfer system using sheet-like waveguide, free access mat. Free access mat has small transmission loss, concentrates the EM wave into itself and is easy to couple by external antennas. By applying two free access mats to the transmitter and the receiver, small coupling loss between two terminals is expected. One-dimensional free access mat is considered and the possibility of high efficiency of wireless power transfer is observed.
