Nitrogen-vacancy-centers (NV-centers) in diamond are promising candidates for applications in quantum information technology.
So far, mostly optical spectroscopy and read-out of NV-centers in diamond have been performed and three different charge states were observed. However, electrical control and read-out of the charge states has been proven to be difficult.
In this contribution, we present a transistor-like structure in diamond that allows us to electrically control the charge state of the NV-centers and which could have the potential for electrical read-out and manipulation.
The sample consists of bulk diamond with NV-centers, where a hydrogen termination on the surface induces a two-dimensional hole gas as a conductive surface layer. Reactive ion etching was used to define a mesa and two different ion implantation steps to form a graphite electrode 95 nm and the NV-centers 10 nm below the surface. After implantation the sample is coated with a thin aluminium oxide layer and annealed in high vacuum. We show device characterization like IV-characteristics, Raman spectroscopy and gate dependent photoluminescence.
