Photoluminescence of the 15NV–-center created by implantation



We study the properties of the spin states in single diamond 15NV–-center at the ground state level anti-crossing. Our approach uses a complete set of com­mu­ting operators. We have shown that under certain conditions in 15NV–-cen­ter it is possible to obtain a 100 % transfer of polarization from the electron spin to the spin of the 15N nucleus. We believe that these conditions can be satisfied for 15NV–-centers obtained by implantation.
