The hierarchy of bound states in quantum chromodynamics:

Here the last two steps go beyond QCD as they also involve electrons from quantum electrodynamics.

There are also bound states purely in QED:

Hypothetically:


brane intersections/bound states/wrapped branes/polarized branes

S-duality\,bound states:

intersecting\,M-branes:
