This paper describes continuous millimeter-wave and terahertz (THz)-wave applications, where telecom-based photonics technologies are efficiently employed to enhance their performance. First, 300-GHz-band wireless communications are described toward real-time error-free transmissions at 50 Gbit/s and beyond. Next, a novel approach to increase a phase measurement sensitivity in THz frequency-domain spectroscopy systems is explained, and a similar technique is successfully applied to the visualization of electric-field radiation and propagation. Finally, as a futuristic study, the manipulation of THz waves with a concept of photonic crystals and its possible applications to platforms in THz integrated systems are presented.
