Paper Abstract

Color centers in diamond have a potential for opto-electronic applications. Laser action of H3 centers in natural diamond has been already reported. Our interest is focused on the possibility of laser action using synthetic diamond. A first attempt was made to produce H3 centers with high density in synthetic diamond. Optical properties of the H3 centers were investigated. Sample-dependent luminescence decay time and long lived transient absorption were observed. Laser action using the H3 centers in synthetic diamond occurred though the efficiency was as low as 0.1%.
