Abstract

The ability to manipulate nano-particles at the nano-scale is critical for the development of active quantum systems. This paper presents a technique to manipulate diamond nano-crystals at the nano-scale using a scanning electron microscope, nano-manipulator and custom tapered optical fibre probes. The manipulation of a ~300 nm diamond crystal, containing a single nitrogen-vacancy centre, onto the endface of an optical fibre is demonstrated. The emission properties of the single photon source post manipulation are in excellent agreement with those observed on the original substrate.

(c) SEM image of the single emitting diamond nano-crystal positioned in the region outside the fibre core. (d) Confocal image of the fibre endface after manipulation and 1 hour anneal at 650 °C in air. (Media 3)
