Abstract

A fiber-coupled single-photon system is presented. Gradient-index lenses are utilized for single-photon collection and fiber coupling of a nitrogen-vacancy defect center in a nanodiamond. Integrated filter technology separates excitation and laser light. Therefore, the system is ultracompact with 120  mm3 in dimension as no bulky free beam optics are used. The commercial availability of all components and their simple assembly allows the implementation of a low-cost single-photon system, possibly approaching single-photon count rates of 500  kcts/s.
