Fabrication, Treatment, and Testing of Materials and Structures


Isolated spherical diamond particles with embedded silicon-vacancy color centers are synthesized on a patterned surface of synthetic opal by chemical vapor deposition methods. The phase composition of the particles is determined and their structural and luminescence properties are studied. Prospects are discussed for the application of these particles as integrated spherical diamond microcavities, in which color centers are situated directly in the microcavities.
