Single photon emitters in silicon carbide (SiC) have attracted widespread attention as photonic systems, applied on quantum applications [1-2]. However, to achieve scalable devices it is essential to generate the single photon emitters at desired location on demand. Here we report the controlled creation of single silicon vacancy (VSi) centres in 4H SiC using laser writing and without annealing. Due to the aberration correction in the writing apparatus and the non-annealing process, the generation of single VSi centres with yield up to 30%, located within about 80 nm of the desired position in the transverse plane. We also investigated the mechanism of the laser writing VSi centres and there are 15.5 photons involved in the laser writing VSi centres process. The results demonstrate a new tool to fabricate single VSi centres in SiC for quantum technologies and provide some insight into the laser writing defects in dielectric materials.
