Each state is characterized by a single set of values of CSCO. The properties of the spin states change at the level anti-crossing (LAC). This change leads to an increase in the spin-lattice relaxation rate and to a change in the ODMR spectrum. The LAC can occur during implantation and thus influence the observed yield of NV- centers of a certain type. We assume ...
