    Abstract

    We report on electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) studies of nitrogen doped diamond that has been 15N enriched, electron irradiated and annealed. EPR spectra from two new nitrogen containing defects are detected and labelled WAR9 and WAR10. We show that the properties of these defects are consistent with them being the 〈001〉-nitrogen split interstitial and the 〈001〉-nitrogen split interstitial-〈001〉-carbon split interstitial pair, respectively. We also provide an explanation for why these defects have previously eluded discovery.
