Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics, was an advanced physical theory, defining atoms and objects on the quantum level. Specialized quantum mechanics labs were utilized by the corresponding science department aboard both Galaxy- and Intrepid-class starships. (TNG: "Lessons"; VOY: "The 37's")

According to Kurros, fellow Think Tank member, Bevvox, specialized in exosociology and quantum mechanics, "but his interests vary from time to time." (VOY: "Think Tank")

Doctor Phlox, an expert in medicine and psychiatry, was not specialized in quantum physics. This fact made it difficult to give Trip Tucker a proper prognosis after his arm was apparently cloaked. (ENT: "The Communicator")

Late in 2371, Crewman Jarvin had become involved with a female officer stationed in quantum mechanics on the USS Voyager. (VOY: "The 37's")

Kathryn Janeway preferred studying quantum mechanics over camping as a child. (VOY: "Resolutions") Seven of Nine considered quantum mechanics to be one of her interests when searching for a compatible date. (VOY: "Someone to Watch Over Me")

According to Roberto Orci, the time travel in Star Trek was based on quantum mechanics, and their rationale for the prime reality and the alternate reality co-existing. Orci also cited TNG: "Parallels" as an example of quantum mechanics in action in the Star Trek universe. [1]
