  • Atom (science) [r]: The defining unit of chemical elements. [e]
  • Aurora Borealis [r]: Visible light stimulated by the interaction of the solar wind and the upper atmosphere, around the North Magnetic Pole. [e]
  • Boson [r]: elementary particle with integral spin; composite system consisting of an even number of fermions. [e]
  • Double-slit experiment [r]: Demonstration of the wave properties of light, first performed by Thomas Young to demonstrate Christiaan Huygen’s Principle. [e]
  • Electromagnetic radiation [r]: a collection of electromagnetic waves, usually of different wavelengths. [e]
  • Electromagnetic wave [r]: A change, periodic in space and time, of an electric field E(r,t) and a magnetic field B(r,t); a stream of electromagnetic waves, referred to as electromagnetic radiation, can be seen as a stream of massless elementary particles, named photons. [e]
  • Eye [r]: The eye is an organ that can detect an image. [e]
  • Gravitational lens [r]: A lens formed when light from a very distant, bright source (such as a quasar) is 'bent' around a massive object (such as a cluster of galaxies) between the source object and the observer. [e]
  • International Ultraviolet Explorer [r]: An astronomical satellite designed primarily to observe ultraviolet spectra. [e]
  • Magnetometer [r]: A scientific instrument used to measure the strength and/or direction of the magnetic field in the vicinity of the instrument. [e]
  • Matter [r]: Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Matter (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
  • Momentum [r]: mass of a particle times its velocity (a vector). [e]
  • Normal distribution [r]: a symmetrical bell-shaped probability distribution representing the frequency of random variations of a quantity from its mean. [e]
  • Nuclear fuel cycle [r]: The progression of nuclear fuel through a series of differing stages, also called the nuclear fuel chain. [e]
  • Nuclear medicine [r]: That medical specialty, or subspecialty, concerned with diagnosis and treatment using radioisotopes administered to the patient [e]
  • Photosynthesis [r]: The process by which an organism captures and stores energy from sunlight, energy it uses to power its cellular activities. [e]
  • Quantum mechanics [r]: An important branch of physics dealing with the behavior of matter and energy at very small scales. [e]
  • Radiant flux [r]: The rate of flow of radiant energy. [e]
  • Radiation-emitting product [r]: An electronic device or physical product that emits defined types of ionizing radiation, non-ionizing radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum, or sound energy, and makes claims to have medical benefits [e]
  • Radiation [r]: Transmission of energy through space. [e]
  • Radiochemistry [r]: The chemistry of radioactive materials [e]
  • Radiographic equipment [r]: Equipment used for radiographic work, both medical and industrial. [e]
  • Schrödinger equation [r]: A differential equation of quantum mechanics, describing the spatial and temporal behavior of wave functions. [e]
  • Zero-point energy [r]: The lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may possess; it is the energy of the ground state of the system. [e]
