This paper reviews a recent progress in terahertz wireless communications enabled by photonics technologies. After briefly summarizing transceiver configurations with electronics and photonics technologies, photonics-based approaches to achieving over 100-Gbit/s data rates are discussed. Then, some of our updated results on real-time wireless transmission experiments using discrete components are shown at data rates up to 50 Gbit/s. Finally, integration technologies are described by demonstrating latest advances in integrated optical sources and transmitters.
