Abstract

We report the realization of a solid-state single-photon source in the near infrared regime at room temperature. It is based on the photoluminescence of a single nickel-related colour centre in a CVD grown diamond nanocrystal. Antibunching has been observed in the fluorescence light, with which we demonstrate a triggered single-photon source at room temperature.
