Idea

A neutron is certain a bound state of three quarks, hence a baryon.

The bound states of protons and neutrons (jointly: nucleons) in turn are the nuclei, the cores of atoms.

field (physics)

standard model of particle physics

force field gauge bosons

scalar bosons

matter field fermions (spinors, Dirac fields)

hadron (bound states of the above quarks)

solitons

minimally extended supersymmetric standard model

superpartners

bosinos:

sfermions:

dark matter candidates

Exotica

auxiliary fields
