We present our recent developments of Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs) for phonon and photon detections. Cooper-pair breaking caused by deposited energy of phonons or photons changes the kinetic inductance of a resonator formed with a thin superconducting metal layer. The detection principle of the MKIDs enables us to have a frequency-domain multiplexing. We have developed an array of Lumped Element KID resonators for the detections of phonons from the substrate and visible light photons.
