This paper presents the excitation coefficient optimization of slot array antennas for increasing channel capacity in 2×2-mode two-dimensional ROM (rectangular coordinate orthogonal) transmission. Because the ROM transmission is for non-far region communication, the transmission between Tx (transmission) and Rx (reception) antennas increases when the antennas radiate beams inwardly. At first, we design the excitation coefficients of the slot arrays in order to enhance the transmission rate for a given transmission distance. Then, we fabricate monopulse corporate-feed waveguide slot array antennas that have the designed excitation amplitude and phase in the 60-GHz band for the 2×2-mode two-dimensional ROM transmission. The measured transmission between the fabricated Tx and Rx antennas increases at the given propagation distance and agrees with the simulation.
