"Workshop on Controlled Fabrication of NV Centers in Diamonds" by Ania Bleszynski, Karoly Holczer, Susumu Takahashi

Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 8:00am to Sunday, March 11, 2018 - 6:00pm
Bhaumik Workshop

The properties of NV centers in diamonds have been extensively explored over the past 20 years. Single-site experiments with extraordinary precision and resolution have been demonstrated, raising expectations for revolutionary metrology/spectroscopy applications. However, all potential applications require a highly reproducible and precise placement of NV centers in pure synthetic diamond crystals.

Confronted with the requirements of proposed applications, the Workshop intends is to examine the limits and potentials of techniques used to control the NV center’s concentration, orientation, and relative depth below the diamond surface, while maintaining their excellent sensing properties. Ultimately, realizing the full potential of many of the proposed applications will require producing NV centers at a precision, scale and cost beyond what is currently possible. By bringing together experts in CVD, MWP-CVD growth, ion-implantation, and diamond processing with the instrument builders who are using the NV centers, the workshop will explore the intersection of future needs with manufacturing capabilities.
