Optical properties of diamond
Diamond is a crystalline form of carbon. Defects in the crystal structure, notably the addition of nitrogen atoms, can emit light when electronically excited. These so-called nitrogen–vacancy centres can be used as single-photon sources, and are a potential resource for quantum information processing.
