Nuclear technology

Nuclear technology is technology that involves the nuclear reactions of atomic nuclei. Among the notable nuclear technologies are nuclear reactors, nuclear medicine, and nuclear weapons.

Nuclear technology encompasses any technology that utilize nuclear reactions or radiation produced by them. This could be to produce energy in nuclear power plants, the use of radiation for diagnostics and treatments in medicine, weaponizing the energy stored in nuclei for a nuclear weapon, propelling naval vessels, or many other industrial and commercial applications.
