Examples of thermonuclear in the following topics:
- A thermonuclear weapon is a nuclear weapon designed to use the heat generated by a fission bomb to compress a nuclear fusion stage.
- The fusion stage in these types of weapons is required in order to efficiently create the large quantities of fission that are characteristic of most thermonuclear weapons.
- The essential features of a mature, thermonuclear weapon design, which officially remained secret for nearly three decades, are the following:
- The most important principle of the Teller–Ulam configuration is the idea that different parts of a thermonuclear weapon can be chained together in "stages," in which the detonation of each stage provides the energy necessary to ignite the next stage.
