      As an emerging topic, microwave measurements enabled by photonics have distinct features such as wide frequency coverage, large instantaneous bandwidth, and low loss. This article provides a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in photonic microwave measurements, including spectrum analysis, instantaneous frequency measurement, channelization, Doppler frequency-shift measurement, angle-of-arrival detection, time–frequency analysis, compressive sensing, and phase-noise measurement. The photonic microwave radar is also discussed. Advantages and future prospects are then discussed.
