physicists stretch diamond using an electric field

the scheme of the experiment (for practical use). credit: alexander obraztsova research team from the faculty of physics of lomonosov moscow state university stretched acicular diamond crystallites using an electric field. deformation occurring during the stretching causes changes in the luminescence spectrum. this effect can be used to develop electric field detectors and other quantum optic devices. the work was published in nano letters. similar to other crystals, diamonds always contain structural defects. some of them cause changes in coloring (light absorption) or luminescence and are called color centers. specific characteristics of some types of color centers in diamonds make them suitable for use in quantum optic devices such as q...
