Cold atoms have emerged as interesting quantum system to study coherent transport properties of light. First experiments have established that dilute samples with large optical thickness allow studying weak localization of light. The present goal of this research is to study coherent transport of photons in dense samples. The quest for Anderson localization of light is among the most interesting questions currently studied. One important aspect in the quest of Anderson localization of light with cold atoms is the relation of Anderson localization and Dicke super- or subradiance. With large and dense samples of cold atoms the interplay between these different phenomena can be studied. Other related research topics concern anomalous diffusion (Lévy flights of photons) and random lasing which can arise if one combines gain with multiple scattering. Cold atoms thus continue to allow for new exciting physics to be investigated.
