The study of ultraperipheral nuclear collisions (UPCs) is breaking new grounds in fundamental physics. Although experiments at BNL RHIC and at the CERN LHC are not designed to exploit photon-induced interactions there is a plethora of recent results on UPCs in a wide variety of subjects: imaging the nucleus, studying fundamental electromagnetic and electroweak processes, probing the Quark-Gluon Plasma, and searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. In this talk, we will discuss a selection of recent UPC studies, as well as new directions in light of new theoretical and phenomenological studies, including novel applications of quantum mechanics.
