Solid state, or solid matter, is one of the four fundamental states of matter. It may also refer to:




  • Solid-state chemistry, the study of the synthesis, structure, and properties of solid phase materials
  • Solid-state physics, the study of rigid matter, or solids, through methods such as quantum mechanics, crystallography, electromagnetism, and metallurgy
  • Solid-state laser, a laser that uses a gain medium that is a solid, rather than a liquid such as in dye lasers or a gas as in gas lasers
