STED microscopy reveals crystal colour centres with nanometric resolution

Abstract:

Because they have spin states that can be optically polarized and detected, fluorescent nitrogen vacancies in diamond have considerable potential for applications in quantum cryptography and computation, as well as for nanoscale magnetic imaging and biolabelling. However, their optical detection and control are hampered by the diffraction resolution barrier of far-field optics. Here, we show that stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy is capable of imaging nitrogen-vacancy centres wi...
