In this talk, I will present our ongoing efforts towards trapping neutral ultracold atom/s using potentials created by optical near-field in the vicinity of tapered metal nanowires. After giving a brief motivation for distributed quantum information processing, I will briefly introduce plasmonics. Following theoretical proposals from other groups to trap single atoms near metal nanowire tips we are currently building a setup where we start with ultracold atoms and would like to integrate with plasmonics. Our current progress in creating ultra-cold atoms that can reach quantum degeneracy temperatures will be presented.

This talk is part of the Cold Atoms series.
