During the past grant period 1090 - present we have made advances in laser trapping and cooling on several fronts. These efforts cover a spectrum which goes from developing new technology which has immediate application in the construction of better atomic clocks at one end, to developing basic physics ideas on how to achieve a Bose condensed vapor, at the other. This latter subject is one where it is likely to be many years before the full implications of this proposed new state of matter, and its possible applications are fully realized.
