Describe the Bohr model of the atom. What is Bohr’s key idea (involving matter waves) that makes the Bohr atom have discrete

Bohr postulated that angular momentum is quantized in order to explain the discrete energy levels of atoms, see here:
The idea of matter waves came later. It was proposed by de Broglie, see here:
