- Nuclear fusion : Add brief definition or description
- Nuclear weapon : A weapon that produces extremely powerful explosions from principles involving subatomic particle reactions, rather than the chemical reactions among atoms that power conventional explosives
- Edward Teller : (January 15, 1908 - September 9, 2003) One of the most controversial scientists of the 20th century because of his role as the main developer of the hydrogen bomb, his outspoken defense of an unassailable nuclear arsenal, and support for President Reagan's Strategic Defensive Initiative.
- Stanislaus Ulam : Add brief definition or description
- Alarm Clock (nuclear weapon) : Add brief definition or description
- Operation Ivy : Conducted in the Marshall Islands in 1952, a pair of U.S. nuclear tests that validated the Teller-Ulam design principle for fusion weapons, and also verified a backup extremely high-yield fission device
- B61 (nuclear weapon) : A thermonuclear fusion device implemented as a "tactical" gravity bomb that has a low to medium variable yield; the B61-11 version has limited ground penetration capability
- B83 (nuclear weapon) : A thermonuclear gravity bomb whose variable yield can be set to the highest (1-2 MtSymbol error) of any deployed U.S. nuclear weapon; uses LX-17 explosive
- Los Alamos National Laboratory : A U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory located in Los Alamos, New Mexico and originally the development and construction center of nuclear weapons during the Manhattan Project for use by the United States in World War II.
- TNT equivalent : A unit of energy commonly used to quantify the energy released (or "yielded") in explosions.
- Neutron : An elementary particle of neutral charge, normally found in the nucleus of chemical elements, but having significant effects when in free flight; the number of neutrons in the nucleus of an element defines its identity as an isotope
- X-rays : Add brief definition or description
- Deuterium : An isotope of the chemical element hydrogen containing one proton and one neutron.
- Tritium : A radioactive isotope of the chemical element hydrogen containing one proton and two neutrons.

- Lithium : A chemical element, having the chemical symbol Li, and atomic number (the number of protons) 3.
- Nuclear fission : A reaction by which a nucleus of a suitable isotope of an element with a high atomic number splits into two nuclei of lower atomic numbers and one or more neutrons and a relatively large release of energy per atom.
