Because of its optical property of photostability, Nitrogen-Vacancy center (NV center) is desired to be applied for biomedical staining for super-resolution microscopy. In this paper, we report the sub-diffraction imaging of NV centers in nano-diamond and bulk materials. The resolution of ∼65nm is achieved in the FND sample with our home built CW STED system.
