Brief description There is intense interest in exploiting diamond’s remarkable properties in many fields of science and technology, but fabricating and processing devices remains a major challenge. We have recently discovered a novel laser-induced surface phenomenon that enables, for the first time for any material, the exciting prospect of using light to manipulate surface atoms with atomic precision. In this project, we will elucidate the mechanisms underpinning the optical interaction to reveal its full potential and to use it to address key problems in diamond nano-device fabrication that lie beyond the reach of current techniques. The outcomes will directly enhance Australia’s current strengths in diamond-based quantum and photonic technologies.
