Raman-excited spin coherences in N-V diamond Academic Article uri icon


  • Raman excited spin coherences were experimentally observed in nitrogen-vacancy (N-V) diamond color centers via nondegenerate four-wave mixing (NDFWM) and electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). The maximal EIT-induced absorption suppression was found to be 17%, which corresponds to 70% of what is possible given the four possible geometric orientations of the N-V center in diamond. The properties of these coherences are discussed in the context of potential applications to solid-state quantum computing and high-temperature spectral hole burning memories.
