Efficient generation of single photons is essential for the development of photonic quantum technologies. We have demonstrated that coupling a nanodiamond nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center to CMOS-compatible nanophotonic structures results in significant reduction of the excited state lifetime, increase in the collected single–photon emission, and modification of radiation pattern. In addition, we studied the effect of increased photonic density of states on spin dependent fluorescence contrast.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
