Introduction to thermonuclear reaction
Thermonuclear reaction is currently a promising new energy source. Light nuclear nuclei participating in nuclear reactions, such as hydrogen (tritium), deuterium, tritium, lithium, and other fusion reactions caused by the necessary kinetic energy obtained from thermal movement (see nuclear fusion). The thermonuclear reaction is the basis of a hydrogen bomb explosion, which can generate a large amount of thermal energy in an instant, but it cannot be used. Controlled thermonuclear reactions can be achieved if the thermonuclear reactions can be generated and carried out in a controlled manner according to people's intentions within a certain restricted area. This is a major subject of experimental research. Controlled thermonuclear reactions are the basis of fusion reactors. Fusion reactors, once successful, could provide the cleanest yet inexhaustible source of energy to humanity.
