Instabilities in nanodiamond nitrogen-vacancy centre single photon sources under prolonged pulsed excitation

Abstract:

Colour centres in nanodiamonds provide robust sources of fluorescence and can be used as triggered sources of single photons at room temperature. However, practical devices require stability over thousands of hours of operation, and the use of strong pulsed optical excitation, placing significant burden on the robustness of the emitters that requires bespoke testing. In this work we report the response of single NV centres in nanodiamonds of 50 nm and 100 nm diameter to accelerated lifetime t...
