Abstract
The nitrogen-vacancy centre (NV) in diamond is a well-studied, optically active colour centre formed by a substitutional nitrogen atom and a nearest-neighbour lattice vacancy. These centres are naturally present in low concentration in diamond containing nitrogen and have received considerable attention recently for their spin properties, room temperature photostability, potential to create single photon sources, use in biological sensing, and as tools for nanoscopy and magnetometry. For many of these applications, precise position and density control of colour centres is essential. We report on position and density control of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centres created in type Ib diamond using localised exposure from a helium ion microscope and subsequent annealing. Spatial control to <380 nm has been achieved. We show that the fluorescence lifetime of the created centres decreases with increasing ion dose. Furthermore, we show that for doses >1x1017 ion/cm2, significant damage of the diamond lattice occurs resulting in fluorescence quenching and amorphization. This places an upper limit on the density of NV centres that can be created using this method.
