Nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers in diamonds is a promising system for quantum information processing and quantum sensing, and the control of the quantum state is essential for practical applications. In this study, we demonstrate a control of all the three transitions among the ground state sublevels of NV centers by applying external magnetic driving fields. To address the states of a specific NV axis among the four axes, we apply a magnetic field orthogonal to the NV axis. We control two…

High-sensitivity magnetometry based on quantum beats in diamond nitrogen-vacancy centers.
An absolute magnetometer based on quantum beats in the ground state of nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond is demonstrated, by eliminating the dependence of spin evolution on the zero-field splitting D, and is immune to temperature fluctuation and strain inhomogeneity.
Imaging the Local Charge Environment of Nitrogen-Vacancy Centers in Diamond.
A novel method is proposed and implemented for the nanoscale localization of individual charges within the diamond lattice that relies upon the fact that the charge induces a NV dark state which depends on the electric field orientation.
Observation of dark states in a superconductor diamond quantum hybrid system
This work has observed a remarkably sharp resonance in the spectrum of flux qubit negatively charged nitrogen vacancy diamond hybrid quantum system under zero external magnetic field and shows that this resonance is evidence of a collective dark state in the ensemble, which is coherently driven by the superposition of clockwise and counter-clockwise macroscopic persistent supercurrents flowing in the flux qu bit.
All-optical control of a solid-state spin using coherent dark states
This work uses coherent population trapping and stimulated Raman techniques to realize initialization, readout, and unitary manipulation of a single spin, and demonstrates an alternative, fully optical approach to these control protocols in an NV center that does not rely on its intersystem crossing.
