Abstract

We present a new materials growth technique for the generation of optically active nanodiamonds. Our approach utilizes so-called “diamondoid” molecular diamonds, few-tetrahedrally bonded carbon atoms, as a seed for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) growth. In particular, we show that both nanoscopic (~100 nm) and microscopic (~1 m) diamond crystals can be grown with high quality diamond from self-assembled monolayers of tetramantane (C22H28) and pentamantane (C26H32). The isolated nanodiamonds used here are μ doped with silicon during crystal growth, yielding silicon vacancy color centers. These materials will be useful for diverse areas such as quantum optics, cavity QED and biological sensing and imaging.
