Topics similar to or like nuclear reactor

Atomic pile, is a device used to initiate and control a fission nuclear chain reaction or nuclear fusion reactions. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear power

    Use of nuclear reactions that release nuclear energy to generate heat, which most frequently is then used in steam turbines to produce electricity in a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power can be obtained from nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear fission

    Nuclear reaction or a radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller, lighter nuclei. The fission process often produces gamma photons, and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear weapon

    Explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb). Both bomb types release large quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear fuel cycle

    Progression of nuclear fuel through a series of differing stages. Used during reactor operation, and steps in the back end, which are necessary to safely manage, contain, and either reprocess or dispose of spent nuclear fuel. Wikipedia

  • Nuclear technology

    Technology that involves the nuclear reactions of atomic nuclei. Among the notable nuclear technologies are nuclear reactors, nuclear medicine and nuclear weapons. Wikipedia

  • Criticality accident

    Uncontrolled nuclear fission chain reaction. Sometimes referred to as a critical excursion, critical power excursion, or divergent chain reaction. Wikipedia
