  • We demonstrate a waveguide-based frequency shifter on the silicon photonic platform, enabling frequency shifts up to 10 GHz. The device is realized by silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) integration. Temporal shaping of the drive signal allows the suppression of spurious side-modes by more than 23 dB.

  • Exposure to beams of low-energy electrons (2-30 keV) in a scanning electron microscope locally induces formation of NV-centers without thermal annealing in diamonds that have been implanted with nitrogen ions. In this study, we find that non-thermal, electron-beam-induced NV-formation is about four times less efficient than thermal annealing. But NV-center formation in a consecutive thermal annealing step (800°C) following exposure to low-energy electrons increases by a factor of up to 1.8 compared to thermal annealing alone. Finally, these observations point to reconstruction of nitrogen-vacancy complexes induced by electronic excitations from low-energy electrons as an NV-center formation mechanism and identify localmore » electronic excitations as a means for spatially controlled room-temperature NV-center formation.« less
  • In this paper, we exposed nitrogen-implanted diamonds to beams of swift heavy ions (~1 GeV, ~4 MeV/u) and find that these irradiations lead directly to the formation of nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers, without thermal annealing. We compare the photoluminescence intensities of swift heavy ion activated NV - centers to those formed by irradiation with low-energy electrons and by thermal annealing. NV - yields from irradiations with swift heavy ions are 0.1 of yields from low energy electrons and 0.02 of yields from thermal annealing. We discuss possible mechanisms of NV center formation by swift heavy ions such as electronic excitationsmore » and thermal spikes. While forming NV centers with low efficiency, swift heavy ions could enable the formation of three dimensional NV - assemblies over relatively large distances of tens of micrometers. Finally and further, our results show that NV center formation is a local probe of (partial) lattice damage relaxation induced by electronic excitations from swift heavy ions in diamond.« less
  • A high-nitrogen-concentration diamond sample was subjected to 200-keV electron irradiation using a transmission electron microscope. The optical and spin-resonance properties of the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color centers were investigated as a function of the irradiation dose up to 6.4 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 21} e{sup -}/cm{sup 2}. The microwave transition frequency of the NV{sup -} center was found to shift by up to 0.6% (17.1 MHz) and the linewidth broadened with increasing electron-irradiation dose. Unexpectedly, the measured magnetic sensitivity is best at the lowest irradiation dose, even though the NV concentration increases monotonically with increasing dose. This is in large part due tomore » a sharp reduction in optically detected spin contrast at higher doses.« less
