Abstract

Coherent population trapping at zero magnetic field was observed for nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond under optical excitation. This was measured as a reduction in photoluminescence when the detuning between two excitation lasers matched the 2.88 GHz crystal-field splitting of the color center ground states. This behavior is highly sensitive to strain, which modifies the excited states, and was unexpected following recent experiments demonstrating optical readout of single nitrogen-vacancy electron spins based on cycling transitions. These results demonstrate for the first time that three-level Lambda configurations suitable for proposed quantum information applications can be realized simultaneously for all four orientations of nitrogen-vacancy centers at zero magnetic field.

(a) Composite photoluminescence (PL) image of a portion of the sample. The narrow-linewidth sector described in the text is outlined in green. (b) PL spectrum showing the zero-phonon line for negatively charged N-V centers, measured at location 1 in the image. (c) Polarized PL spectra from location 2. “H” and ”V” are for excitation and collection polarizations oriented horizontally and vertically, respectively, compared with the image. (d) Schematic energy level diagram.

Fig. 2.

(a) Two-laser scan at location 2, with the fixed laser tuned to the center of the long-wavelength peak in Fig. 1(c), producing the prominent anti-hole features. Both lasers were polarized along “V.” (b) Higher-resolution scan of the anti-hole features. (c) Energy level diagrams explaining the individual peaks. The orange (red) arrows represent transitions driven by the fixed (scanning) laser.

Fig. 3.

(a,b,c) Two-laser scans showing anti-hole features and coherent population trapping effect at sample location 1 (a) and at location 2, measuring the long-wavelength (b) and short-wavelength (c) components of the zero-phonon line. Insets: higher-resolution scans of the -2.88 GHz features. Excitation powers: 5μW for the 637 nm lasers and 2μW for the repump. (d,e) Single-laser scans at locations 1 and 2, respectively. Arrows indicate spectral positions studied in (a,b,c).

Fig. 4.

Two-laser measurements with a weak magnetic field applied to lift the m = ±1 degeneracy. (a) Measured at location 1. Half-wave-plate (HWP) angle 40° corresponds to polarization approximately along [010]. (b) Measured at location 2 for polarization along 010](V). All plots are scaled and shifted for clarity. The measured intensity decreases by approximately 8% for the dips in (a) and 4% for the dips in (b).

Fig. 5.
Fig. 5.

Coherent population trapping at various excitation powers at location 1 (same as in Fig. 3(a)). blue:data, red:fit. The indicated powers correspond to both 637nm lasers. For excitation powers 0.5, 1.6, 5, and 16μW the fits used Rabi frequencies (in this simplified model they are the same for both transitions): 10.1, 14.2, 17.9, and 22.0 MHz; effective population decay rates between ground states: 0.11, 0.20, 0.35, and 0.83MHz; excited-state decoherence: 2.4, 3.0, 6.3, and 11.4MHz; ground-state decoherence: 7.0, 5.8, 3.6, and 3.8MHz.
