Summary: 
This paper describes recent progress of photonically-enabled systems for millimeter-wave and terahertz measurement applications. After briefly explaining signal generation schemes as a foundation of photonics-based approach, system configurations for specific applications are discussed. Then, practical demonstrations are presented, which include frequency-domain spectroscopy, phase-sensitive measurement, electric-field measurement, and 2D/3D imaging.
