Abstract
Mechanical action of optical fields with phase singularities (optical vortices) on laser cooled atoms is theoretically investigated. Due to small sizes and sufficiently low velocities of cold atoms it is intriguing to understand how they may be used to shed a light on some modern problems of singular optics. It is shown that cold atoms are suitable tools for learning of optical singularity evolution, its birth and transformations due to interactions between themselves and with other physical objects. Applications to guiding and trapping of atoms are discussed also.
