Characterisation of single defects in diamond in the development of quantum devices

J.M. Smith,    University of Oxford, UK


This chapter describes the characterisation of single defects in diamond using fluorescence-based techniques and how it can be used to determine the properties both of the defects themselves and of their local environment. Emphasis is placed on methodologies and aspects of the science that can be applied to a range of fluorescent defects, and which illustrate the essential role of characterisation at the single-defect level in the development of quantum devices.
