Idea

A bound state of D5-branes and D9-branes, a special case of Dp-D(p+4)-brane bound states.

Properties

Relation to small instantons

Under duality between heterotic and type I string theory D5D9D5-D9 brane bound states translate to small instantons in heterotic string theory given by wrapped NS5-branes, or rather wrapped M5-branes in heterotic M-theory (Witten 96, Gimon-Polchinski 96)
