There is a growing interest to use very high frequencies (>>50GHz) in several scientific areas. E.g. the quest for more bandwidth in radio communication, healing human tissue from cancer, research into new meta-materials and exploring black holes. A brief overview of the trends to use mm Wave and THz signals will be given and the equipment that is typically used to generate and analyze the signals and their behavior will be described.
