Quantum Physics of Matter explores the way in which quantum physics determines the properties of materials.

The quantum physics of solids, for example, dictates whether they are good insulators, conductors, semiconductors, or even superconductors.

At a deeper level, it explores how the quantum physics of nuclei and elementary particles determines the stability of matter and hence the range of substances that came into existence through the big bang and the evolution of stars.
