Abstract

After the brief historical introduction to physics of cold atoms I discuss the basic typesof dipole radiation forces used for cooling and trapping of cold atoms in the laser fields. An atom traps based on the dipole optical forces, dipole magnetic forces, combined dipole optical-magnetic forces, and the forces combined of the dipole optical-magnetic and gravity forces. The traps using the evanescent waves and near-field optical waves are discussed. An atom traps operation as the waveguiedes and cavities for cold atom are also considered. The review ends with the prospects of applications of cold trapped atoms.
