Microfabricated magnetic traps, waveguides, and other elements for the manipulation of ultracold atoms can be combined to form a quantum laboratory on a chip. Devices such as miniaturized atom lasers, atom interferometers, and atomic clocks have been implemented in this way. Atom chips are also offering intriguing perspectives for quantum simulations and quantum information processing. Recent experiments at Munich will be reviewed.
