Ratchets are devices that operate away from thermal equilibrium and can rectify zero-mean perturbations to achieve directed transport. This PhD thesis describes an implementation of a ratchet system by using laser-cooled atoms in a driven optical lattice. This ratchet system can be precisely controlled experimentally, by adjusting either the driving parameters or the characteristics of the optical lattice. Several new insights, also applicable to other types of ratchets, have been obtained with cold atom ratchets and these are described in this thesis.
