Recently discovered light forces in high-finesse microcavities are ideal to capture single atoms, cool them to ultralow temperatures and trap them for long time intervals. Individual atoms at rest and strongly coupled to a cavity are interesting in quantum information science. Cavity cooling might also be useful to produce cold samples of particles like molecules which have no closed cycling transition for laser cooling.
