Abstract

Substrates effect is observed on the suppression of the phonon sideband from nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers in 50nm diamond nanocrystals at cryogenic temperatures. As a quantitative parameter of the population of phonon sidebands, the Debye–Waller factor is estimated from fluorescence spectra on glass, silicon, and silica-on-silicon substrates. Fluorescence spectra of negatively charged NV centers in nanodiamonds on silica-on-silicon substrates have average and maximum Debye–Waller factors of 12.7% (which is about six times greater than that of samples on glass substrates) and 19.3%, respectively. This effect is expected to be very important for future applications of NV centers in quantum information science and nanosensing.

Stable home-made confocal microscope system with a cryostat installed on a fixed stage. The inserted SEM image shows a uniform distribution of average ~50 nm of diamonds on the substrate, the red-arrows indicating the nanodiamonds. (DM: dichroic mirror; BC: beam control; OBJ: objective lens; F: filter; PH: pinhole; HM: half mirror; HL: halogen-tungsten lamp; Spec: spectrometer; HBT: Hanbury-Brown and Twiss interferometer; CCD: Charge Coupled Device; SPC: Single Photon Counter).

(a) Laser confocal microscopy image of 50-nm diamond crystals. (b) NV center fluorescence photon antibunching function (measured from the nanodiamond indicated by the red circle in (a)). The red curve is a theoretical fit to the data for a three-level system. (c) Spectrum obtained from this multiple NV center in the same nanodiamond.

Spectra of NV centers in diamond nanocrystals measured at (a)–(c) RT and (d)–(f) 4 K on (a) and (d) glass, (b) and (e) Si, and (c) and (f) SiO2/Si substrates.
