The unique set of chemical, optical, electronic, and mechanical properties of nanodiamonds (NDs) make them suitable for a wide range of applications including drug delivery and quantum computing. These useful properties of nanodiamonds can be tuned through modification of their surface chemistry and internal structure. A particularly important example of this is the optoelectronic characteristic behavior of nanodiamonds incorporating nitrogen-vacancy (N-V) defect centres. N-V centre nanodiamonds exhibit extraordinary photoluminescence and quantum-sensing properties, and are also being used as cellular biomarkers. In spite of the huge interest in these samples however, there is still a substantial gap in our knowledge of how their structural properties, particularly in the near-surface region, influence their function. Here we present results from a study, using a combination of Optically Detected Magnetic Resonance (ODMR) spectroscopy, fluorescence mapping as well as Bragg Coherent Diffractive Imaging (BCDI), that aims to unravel the structure-function properties of N-V centre nanodiamonds.
