This question can easily be answered by going to howstuffworks.com and typing in nuclear bomb.
Fission reactions split heavey radioactive material into smaller atoms that are still radio active + energy, this is why we get waste.
With fusion you force 2 small atoms together to create a larger one, this method produces huge amounts of energy and no waste, ideal? yes, but to
create the amount off energy needed to force the atoms to fuse at present requires a fission nuclear reaction, hence u still get waste. a fusion bomb
is detonated by a fission bomb. simple really.
Not sure if that is what u were looking for as i did not really understand what you were asking.
