Research on spatially structured light has seen an explosion in activity over the past decades, powered by technological advances for generating such light and driven by questions of fundamental science as well as engineering applications. In this review, the authors highlight their work on the interaction of vector light fields with atoms, and matter in general. This vibrant research area explores the full potential of light, with clear benefits for classical as well as quantum applications.
