Title: Cavity-Enhanced Raman Emission from a Single Color Center in a Solid

Abstract

We demonstrate cavity-enhanced Raman emission from a single atomic defect in a solid. Our platform is a single silicon-vacancy center in diamond coupled with a monolithic diamond photonic crystal cavity. The cavity enables an unprecedented frequency tuning range of the Raman emission (100 GHz) that significantly exceeds the spectral inhomogeneity of silicon-vacancy centers in diamond nanostructures. We also show that the cavity selectively suppresses the phonon-induced spontaneous emission that degrades the efficiency of Raman photon generation. Furthermore, our results pave the way towards photon-mediated many-body interactions between solid-state quantum emitters in a nanophotonic platform.
