Abstract:

The Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory program of developing physically small fission weapons has led to the design of smaller high-explosive systems. Design work is advancing on even smaller systems. Concurrently with the development of smaller fission weapons, the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory has been advancing in its work on a Super bomb. In this field, theoretical studies have advanced to the point that the experimental study of a simple thermonuclear reaction becomes necessary.
