No, at least not yet.

Actually, a related question has already been answered and is available at

Generally, weapons are developed as needed and as yet no one has been motivated 
to create either 'solar weapons' or weapons on the scale of supernovae.  There 
is a web page on supernovae research at a national laboratory, 

but, even in this instance, understanding the physics of supernovae is a far 
more significant motivator than the development of supernovae-scale weapons.

Thanks for the question and I hope this answer gives you a few more leads 
enabling you to continue your exploration of large-scale physical phenomena.
