Optical spectroscopy and frequency metrology at the highest level of precision and resolution are being greatly facilitated by the use of ultracold atoms and phase stabilized light in the form of both cw and ultrashort pulses. It is now possible to pursue simultaneously coherent control of quantum dynamics in the time domain and high precision measurements of global atomic structure in the frequency domain. These coherent light-based precision measurement capabilities may be extended to the XUV spectral region, where new possibilities and challenges lie for precise tests of fundamental physical principles.
