The photoluminescence of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond nanoparticles exhibits specific properties as compared to NV centers in bulk diamond. For instance large fluctuations of lifetime and brightness from particle to particle have been reported. It has also been observed that for nanocrystals much smaller than the mean luminescence wavelength, the particle size sets a lower threshold for resolution in Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy. We show that all these features… Expand

Photoluminescence of color centers in nanodiamonds
Abstract Owing to its large bandgap of 5.5 eV, diamond can host a large variety of optically active defects (color centers). The most developed ones are two defects comprising in their structure anExpand
Photophysics of single silicon vacancy centers in diamond: implications for single photon emission.
TLDR
This work develops a model describing the three level population dynamics of single SiV centers in diamond nanocrystals on iridium surfaces including an intensity dependent de-shelving process and investigates the brightness and photostability of single centers. Expand
Emission and nonradiative decay of nanodiamond NV centers in a low refractive index environment.
TLDR
This work studies the properties of a single NV center in nanodiamonds embedded in an air-like silica aerogel environment which provides a new domain for probing the emission behavior of NV centers in nanoscale environments. Expand
Quenching nitrogen–vacancy center photoluminescence with an infrared pulsed laser
Diamond nanocrystals containing nitrogen–vacancy (NV) color centers have been used in recent years as fluorescent probes for near-field and cellular imaging. In this work, we report that an infraredExpand
Super-resolving single nitrogen vacancy centers within single nanodiamonds using a localization microscope.
In this paper, we show super-resolving single nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers with a sub-20 nanometer resolution in a wide-field localization microscope based on the discovery of photoluminescenceExpand
Optical Magnetism and Fundamental Modes of Nanodiamonds
The optical properties of color centers in nanodiamonds are widely used in various branches of photonics and interdisciplinary studies. Here, we report on an experimental study of the fundamentalExpand
Stimulated emission depletion microscopy resolves individual nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond nanocrystals.
TLDR
It is shown that, contrary to predictions, STED can resolve single NV centers in 40-250 nm sized nanodiamonds with a resolution of ≈10 nm, which is highly relevant for bioimaging applications of these fluorescent nanolabels. Expand
Coupling of nitrogen vacancy centres in nanodiamonds by means of phonons
Realizing controlled quantum dynamics via the magnetic interactions between colour centres in diamond remains a challenge despite recent demonstrations for nanometre separated pairs. Here we proposeExpand
Controlled quantum dynamics of Nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond
Color centers in diamond, and in particular the nitrogen-vacancy center (NV center), have proven promising for the emerging field of quantum technologies. In this thesis, new concepts for theExpand
Local density of electromagnetic states in plasmonic nanotapers: spatial resolution limits with nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond nanospheres.
TLDR
This work supports the analysis and interpretation of a single NV color center in a nanodiamond as a probe for scanning near-field optical microscopy and finds that Purcell factors higher than ten can be reached with diamond nanospheres of radius less than 5 nm and at a distance of less than 20 nm from the surface of the structure.
