Paper Abstract

We present the on-demand coupling of single NV- defect centers in nanodiamonds to a polystyrene microspherical resonator. From an ensemble on a coverslip we select out single nanodiamonds containing a single defect proven by a pronounced antibunching dip. With the help of a scanning near-field probe we can attach these nanodiamonds to a microsphere resonator one-by-one. A clearly modulated fluorescence spectrum demonstrates coupling of the single defect centers to high- whispering-allery modes. Our experiments establish a toolbox to assemble complex systems consisting of single quantum emitters and (coupled) microresonators.
