Teller made numerous contributions to nuclear and molecular physics, spectroscopy (the Jahn–Teller and Renner–Teller effects) , and surface physics. His extension of Fermi's theory of beta decay (in the form of the so-called Gamow–Teller transitions) provided an important stepping stone in the applications of this theory." "He was a co-founder of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) , and was both its director and associate director for many years." ; Signed by Author
