Photodynamics of the nitrogen-vacancy colour centre in diamond

Harrison, Joanne Patrice

Description

The nitrogen-vacancy (N-V⁻) colour centre in diamond has potential applications in quantum information processing and single photon generation. It is currently the only known defect in a solid detected at a single site level that has a non-zero spin in the electronic ground state. For the proposed applications it is desirable to have a good understanding of the electronic structure and photodynamics of the centre, however this is currently not the case. Various models have been proposed...[Show more]
