Abstract

We present a fiber-coupled diamond-based single photon system. Single nanodiamonds containing nitrogen vacancy defect centers are deposited on a tapered fiber of 273 nanometer in diameter providing a record-high number of 689,000 single photons per second from a defect center in a single-mode fiber. The system can be cooled to cryogenic temperatures and coupled evanescently to other nanophotonic structures, such as microresonators. The system is suitable for integrated quantum transmission experiments, two-photon interference, quantum-random-number generation and nano-magnetometry.

Fig. 1

(a) Schematic of a tapered fiber equipped with nanodiamonds, excited with a 532 nm laser, single photons were collected either through the objective or the fiber ends. Tapered fibers with diameters down to 273 nm were applied. 1 and 2 indicate fiber end one and fiber end two, respectively. (b) Schematic of dip coating technique: A small droplet of an aqueous nanodiamond solution was given onto the facet of a thin glass rod with a diameter of about 1 mm. The tapered fiber was dipped into the solution. By moving the tapered fiber via a linear stage along the fiber axis through the droplet, nanodiamonds were deposited. This deposition was controlled by the laser scattering signal of the deposited nanoparticles and allowed for controlling the deposition of an approximate number of scatterers.

Fig. 2

(a) Top: Microscope picture of a 40 μm long tapered fiber section. Laser is guided through the fiber. The scattered light from four scatterers is visible. Bottom: x–y-intensity scan of the same region. While the tapered fiber is scanned, 532 nm laser light is focused on the tapered fiber. The laser is blocked with a 565 nm long pass filter before the detection of fluorescence > 565 nm. One of the four scatterers contains several nitrogen vacancy centers. (b) Spectrum of the fluorescence of the light emitter depicted in the lower panel of Fig. 2(a) at excitation intensity of 500 μW. Several nitrogen vacancy centers contribute to the emission. Clearly visible are the zero phonon lines of the neutral (575 nm) and the negatively charged (637 nm) centers. (c) Spectrum of the fluorescence of a single neutral nitrogen vacancy center excited with 500 μW, normalized to the zero phonon line at 575 nm. The black and red line in (b) and (c) represent the fluorescence collected via an air objective and via one end of the fiber, respectively. The red spectra appear redshifted due to chromatic dependence of the fiber filter stage transmission.

(a) Normalized auto-correlation function of the same single NV center as in Fig. 2(c). Light was collected via the air objective (see Fig. 1(a)). A deep anti-bunching dip g(2)(0) = 0.11 is visible. According to the spectrum in Fig. 2(c) this correlation measurement confirms a single neutral NV defect center as single photon source. (b) Cross-correlation measurement for fiber end one with the photons collected via the objective (see Fig. 1(a)). g(2)(0) = 0.29 proves single photon statistics for the fiber coupled light. For an equivalent measuremtent for fiber end two g(2)(0) was 0.29 (not displayed for redundance). (c) Cross-correlation measurements between the two fiber ends. The anti-bunching dip g(2)(0) = 0.61 is slightly higher than 0.5, yet indicating strong quantum character of the light. The correlation functions in (a), (b), (c) were taken at excitation intensities of 450 μW, 500 μW and 400 μW, respectively.

(a,b,c) Saturation measurements of the NV from Fig. 2(c). Fitting (red solid lines) was done according to text. This analysis reveals (a) 74 ± 2 kcps, (b) 104 ± 1 kcps and (c) 107 ± 3 kcps for collection via the objective, fiber end one and fiber end two, respectively (see Fig. 1(a)). In total 211 ± 3 kcps single-mode single photons from the fiber were measured. The efficiencies to measure a single photon from the tapered region are ν = 0.33 for emission from fiber end one and ν = 0.29 for fiber end two. Taking these efficiencies into consideration, a total number of (689 ± 12) · 103 single photons are coupled to the single-mode fiber at saturation intensities.

Fig. 5

(a) Spectra of several NVs from a single nanodiamond measured via fiber end one and fiber end two (see Fig. 1(a)), depicted with a black and a red line, respectively. The integrated intensities have a ratio of 56:44. Blue arrows indicate the zero phonon lines of neutral (575 nm) and negatively charged (637 nm) centers.
