In this talk we will review recent progress in the emerging field of quantum x-ray optics including experimental demonstrations of the coherent waveform shaping of the x-ray photons, acoustically induced transparency, slow light, and very recent realizations of quantum nuclear memory and resonant excitation of the 12.4 keV long-lived (0.46 s) nuclear transition in 45Sc, the most promising Mössbauer nuclear clock candidate.
