The revolution in atomic physics brought by the inventions of Doppler cooling and the magneto-optical trap has so far mainly been confined to a small number of atomic species and the molecules that may be formed from them. I shall discuss some possible methods for extending direct optical cooling to a wider variety of atomic and molecular species, using both the optical scattering and dipole forces, programmed laser pulses and spatially modulated laser beams.
