A technique has been developed for depositing diamond crystals on the endfaces of optical fibers and capturing the fluorescence generated by optically active defects in diamond into the fiber. This letter details the diamond growth on optical fibers and transmission of fluorescence through the fiber from the nitrogen-vacancy color center in diamond. Control of the concentration of defects incorporated during the chemical vapor deposition growth process is also demonstrated. These are critical steps in developing a fiber coupled single-photon source based on optically active defect centers in diamond.
