Abstract Coherent guiding and manipulation of matter-waves is of utmost importance in the development of practical atomtronic sensors and devices. In this thesis, I present excitationless guiding of Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) at hypersonic speeds in magnetic time-averaged adiabatic potential (TAAP) rings traps and waveguides. For the first time, matter-waves are transported for a record distance of 40 cm at hypersonic speeds without detecting any extra excitation when compared to the static case. To realize a rotation sensor utilizing the clock transition of Rubidium 87 (87Rb), I present trapping and manipulation of the spin states of 87Rb, in two arms of a ring trap. The extreme smoothness of TAAP rings is demonstrated via the propagation of BECs in the ring waveguide, measured smoothness is below 200 pK. In a different interferometer configuration, using optical beam splitters and guided matter-waves in a horizontal ring waveguide, I implemented delta-kick cooling technique to achieve compact atomic wave-packet guiding for seconds. The one-dimensional effective BEC temperature is lowered by a factor of 30, down to a few nanoKelvin. These demonstrations now provide a platform to realize highly sensitive, compact atomic rotation sensors, and investigate fundamental questions, e.g., superfluidity of BECs much above their critical velocity.
