Types of quantum field thories
hadrons are bound states of quarks
(at temperature high enough that these bound states decay, one speaks of a quark-gluon plasma)
atomic nuclei are bound states of certain hadrons, namely of protons and neutrons (nucleons)
atoms are bound states of nuclei and electrons
(at temperature high enough that these bound states decay, one speaks of a plasma)
if quarks themselves were bound states (which they are not according to the standard model of particle physics) then one would call them bound states of preons
a composite Higgs boson would be a bound state of a strongly interacting sector beyond the current standard model of particle physics
D-branes and anti D-branes form bound states by tachyon condensation, thought to imply the classification of D-brane charge by K-theory
D5-branes and NS5-branes form bound states to (p,q)5-branes
