We give a brief overview of how atomic physics is now developing in a way reminiscent of the optics revolution of the 1960s. Thanks in particular to recent progress in atomic trapping and cooling, the new field of atom optics is rapidly leading to exciting new developments such as nonlinear atom optics and quantum atom optics. We illustrate these advances with examples out of our own research.
