Abstract

Ultrafast heating of photoionized free electrons by high-numerical-aperture (0.25–0.65) focused visible-range ultrashort laser pulses provides their resonant impact trapping into intra-gap electronic states of point defect centers in a natural IaA/B diamond with a high concentration of poorly aggregated nitrogen impurity atoms. This excites fine-structured, broadband (UV-near-infrared) polychromatic luminescence of the centers over the entire bandgap. The observed luminescence spectra revealed substitutional nitrogen interaction with non-equilibrium intrinsic carbon vacancies, produced simultaneously as Frenkel “vacancy-interstitial” pairs during the laser exposure.
