I'm not exactly where this belongs (on which board), so feel free to move it if you need to. My question is this: When you combine Deuterium (D) with Tritium (T) in certain situations it causes nuclear fusion to be produced. Now, of course, I realize it isn't that simple, rather there are a number of factors that must take place in order for a stable fusion reaction to take place. This is not my question, its just that the fact that when you combine the two you can get a fusion reaction. My question is when you you combine the antimatter elements of AntiDeuterium and AntiTritium together would the result be greater or weaker than a standard fusion reaction created using standard Deuterium an Tritium. Would the Antimatter combined with the fusion reaction increase the power exponentially or would it simply cause the reaction to fizzle out and this theory is completely useless. The reason I ask is that everyone knows that when antimatter comes in contact with "normal" matter, the two annihilate each other and the resulting explosion is many times greater than the capabilities of present-day nuclear weapons. So would the fact that this hypothetical bomb contains both Antimatter (in the form of the AntiDeuterium and AntiTritium) and the capability to maintain stable fusion for an unspecified amount of time mean that the resulting explosion from this "bomb" be significantly greater than anything the world has seen thus far? Obviously, this hasn't ever been tested so I'm asking for best-guess theoretical answers. I don't have the means to test this (as nobody really does), but I'm still interested in responses.
