Nanodiamonds (ND) are carbon particles with size from 2 to few tens of nanometers which already have broad applications in polishing materials, lubricants as well as applications in biomedical imaging. More recently, the accurate control of the doping of the nanodiamond structure with atomic defects,such as Nitrogen-Vacancy centers (NV-1), having optical and spin properties gives to this material an exceptional candidate for photonic devices and quantum information processing and computing. Here, we combine scanning probe microscopy imaging and spectroscopy to investigate at the atomic scale single nanodiamonds/HOPG. Under illumination with wavelenghts of 400 nm and 470 nm, a modulation of the electronic band gap as well as the contact potential difference (CPD) between tip and sample is observed compared to the dark condition, whereas no relevant variation is obtained for wavelenghts superior to 590 nm. This effect is a direct evidence of the light-induced charges arising from the NV centers of nanodiamonds.
