We investigate the one-dimensional physics of a linear chain of ions immersed in a Luttinger liquid (LL) of spin-polarized fermionic atoms. Such systems have recently become experimentally realizable and host an interesting interplay between atom-atom interactions and atom-ion interactions. We compute the LL parameter and the speed of sound as a function of the quantum defect parameters, the latter of which can be controlled e.g. by manipulating the ions' internal state. We find a strong dependence of the LL parameter and the speed of sound on the quantum defect parameters, enabling us to modify the static properties of the quantum liquid via external driving of the ionic impurities.
