Abstract Silicon-vacancy (SiV) color centers have been created in diamond by ion implantation and post annealing at LABEC (Florence). A wide range of implantation depths (0–2.4 μm) and fluences (108–1015 cm−2), along with a variety of substrates (single and poly-crystals) have been explored. The photoluminescence properties of the SiV centers have been studied at room temperature, including their single-photon emission characteristics. Single-photon emitters have been obtained at the lower-end of the implantation fluences range. They exhibit a short excited-state lifetime (~1 ns), a strong zero-phonon transition with a narrow linewidth (~1.6 nm) and a very small...
