    Strong modification of the optical spectra is apparent in nitrogen-doped chemical vapor deposited (CVD) diamonds. Nitrogen-vacancy (NV) defects in CVD diamond are effectively created by nitrogen doping with a high concentration of the gaseous phase. In particular, the 575 nm center and 637 nm...
