  • Engineering [r]: a branch of engineering that uses chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems involving fuel, drugs, food, and many other products. [e]
  • Nuclear physics [r]: A branch of the science of physics involving nuclei of atoms, sub-atomic particles, and any reactions involving them. [e]


  • Moderator (nuclear) [r]: Materials, in nuclear engineering, that reduce the flow of particles or electromagnetic radiation [e]
  • Nuclear power reconsidered [r]: a reconsideration of nuclear power plants (using non-explosive nuclear reactions to make steam, which in turn is used to generate electricity) in light of current world factors [e]
  • Fission device [r]: An assembly of components, not necessarily in a form usable as a weapon, which will produce a large energy release through nuclear fission [e]
  • Fusion device [r]: An explosive device, whether used as a weapon or for other purposes, which depends for most of its explosive power on the release of energy by combining atomic nuclei [e]
  • Nuclear weapon [r]: an extremely dangerous bomb based atomic fission (the "atom bomb" or A-bomb) or fusion (the "hydrogen" or H-bomb); a powerful conventional bomb is also needed to trigger the atomic reaction. [e]
