Highly enriched uranium (HEU)

Uranium in which the naturally occurring U-235 isotope - 0.7 percent in natural uranium, 99.3 percent U-238 - is increased to 20 percent U-235 or above, but usually to 90 percent or more. HEU is used in nuclear weapons, and in some types of research and submarine propulsion reactors.
