dc.description.abstract We describe theoretically a setup in which a tapered optical nanofiber is introduced into an optical lattice potential for cold atoms. First, we consider the disturbance to the geometry of the lattice potential due to scattering of the lattice lasers from the dielectric fiber surface and show that the resulting distortion to the lattice can be minimized by placing the fiber at an appropriate position in the lattice. We then calculate the modifications of the local potentials that are achievable by transmitting off-resonant light through the fiber. The availability of such a technique holds the potential to deterministically create and address small well-defined samples of atoms in the evanescent field of the tapered nanofiber. en
