Abstract

Clouds of cold atoms, collected and refrigerated by laser light, can be cooled to nanoKelvin temperatures. This has created the new field of atom optics where cold atoms are manipulated, much as photons are controlled in traditional optics using mirrors, lenses, and gratings. It is also becoming possible to confine and manipulate atoms in extremely small traps and waveguides, which give access to de Broglie wave physical optics. Atoms flowing in such structures could provide a new technology based on the flow and quantum interactions of neutral atoms. Atom "chips" could lead to integrated atom interferometers and even possibly to a quantum information processor.
