Abstract: In this paper, in order to meet the testing requirements of terahertz scientific researches and engineering applications, we have introduced the relevant international standards of terahertz transmission lines, as well as the precise manufacturing and process realizations of complex three-dimensional guided wave structures such as terahertz rectangular metal waveguides, multilayer guided wave structures and double directional coupling structures. Then, the research progress on active devices and circuits such as terahertz Schottky diodes, high-efficiency frequency multiplication, harmonic mixing, power detection, etc. are presented. On the basis of the research progress, four common measuring instruments including terahertz vector network analyser, signal generator, spectrum analyser and power meter are developed. Furthermore, three measuring systems consisting of material, radar cross section (RCS) and antenna are developed. The developed measuring instruments and systems can cover the frequencies ranging from 50 GHz to 750 GHz. The whole industry chain including the core devices, components, measuring instruments and systems are independently controllable, which is able to provide a complete set of measuring solution for terahertz scientific research and engineering applications.

Keywords: Millimeter wave; Terahertz; Measuring instruments; Measuring systems.
