The use of Bessel light beams for trapping and guiding cold atoms at or close to quantum degeneracy was addressed. In particular, the Bessel light beam optical dipole trap was studied with the aim of generating one-dimensional quantum gases. A Tonks gas of impenetrable bosons was realized. Furthermore, the waveguiding of a matter-wave beam along a higher-order Bessel light beam was characterized.
