Atomtronics is the emerging quantum technology of matter-wave circuits which coherently guide propagating ultra-cold atoms. The field benefits from the remarkable progress in micro optics, allowing to control the coherent matter with enhanced flexibility on the micron spatial scale. This way, both fundamental studies in quantum science and technological applications can be carried out. After a colloquium style introduction to the field, I will focus on the specific example of bosonic or fermionic cold atoms confined in ring-shaped traps. I particular, I will show that the persistent current in such system displays exotic quantization properties. Such feature paves the way for the realization of quantum sensors with enhanced sensitivity.
