That's an interesting observation. In the submillimeter domain we are
just entering the (high) range of EM frequencies where our instruments
detect quanta. Below that they are wave detectors. I don't think we have
any technology that allows us to detect photons in the radio band, for
In terms of astronomy, it makes no difference at all. It is interesting
in terms of language, however.
