I will discuss two experiments at the University of Auckland. In the first experiment we consider a two dimensional Bose gas in an "atomtronic" circuit. We will look at the effects of Anderson localization and of quantum turbulence. In the second experiment we consider an optical nanofiber, which is part of a fiberoptic ring resonator, interacting with atoms in a MOT. We see strong coupling
between atoms and photons, and show saturation of the system for 13 photons in the resonator.
