  • Isotope

    Isotope

    Isotope, in chemistry, one of two or more forms of an element that have the same atomic number but different atomic weights. See more »

  • Neutrino

    Neutrino

    Neutrino, an elementary particle that has no electric charge. Physicists believe that neutrinos have either an extremely small mass or no mass at all. See more »

  • Nuclear Energy

    Nuclear Energy

    Nuclear Energy, energy released in large amounts by the splitting or formation of atomic nuclei. See more »

  • Nuclear Physics

    Nuclear Physics

    Nuclear Physics, the branch of physics that deals with the atomic nucleus, or inner core of the atom. See more »

  • Particle Accelerator

    Particle Accelerator

    Particle Accelerator, a device that accelerates electrons, protons, or other charged particles to very high speeds. See more »

  • Quantum Theory

    Quantum Theory

    Quantum Theory, the theory that radiant energy is emitted (given off) and absorbed in units, or quanta, rather than in a steady stream. See more »

  • Quark

    Quark

    Quark, a particle that physicists believe is a basic constituent of protons, neutrons, and certain other subatomic particles collectively known as hadrons. See more »
