In order to make the small effects of feebly interacting particles as candidates for Dark Matter or mediators to a Dark Sector detectable, novel approaches are in demand. I will present the use of cold atoms as quantum sensors for particle physics questions. In particular, I will show how the rapidly advancing precision of atomic clocks constrains light new bosons and how they could be used for the detection of high-frequency gravitational waves.
