Yle Radio 1 interview

Mikko Möttönen was interviewed by Yle Radio 1 science program about the microwave photon detector.

QCD group leader Prof. Mikko Möttönen was recently interviewed by Yle Radio 1 for the science program Tiedeykkönen. The discussion is about the work related to the recent Physical Review Letters publication [J. Govenius et al., PRL 117, 030802 (2016)] about detecting zeptojoule microwave pulses. The future of the microwave detector is also discussed.

Professor Päivi Törmä from Quantum Dynamics group was also interviewed about the nature of light for the same radio program.
