Atomtronics is an emerging field seeking to realize atomic circuits for quantum technology, exploiting ultra-cold atoms manipulated in micro-magnetic or laser-generated micro-optical circuits. Indeed, several atomtronic circuits on small and medium size scale have been recently realized experimentally. Important chapters in mesoscopic physics, like persistent currents in ring shaped structures, transport through quantum dots and more complex terminals, quantum phase slips etc. could be explored with an enhanced flexibility and control. In this talk, I will give a brief overview of the field. In particular, I will be focusing on maybe the simplest instance of atomtronic circuit: ultracold-atoms in ring-shaped potentials and pierced by an effective magnetic flux.
