The emission state of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centres in nanodiamonds (NDs) can be manipulated by controlling the size, the surface moieties of the crystal host, and the bandgap structure of the adjacent dielectric environment. These factors also explain the observed luminescence intermittency (“blinking”) of the NV centre in terms of tunnelling of its electron(s) to acceptor site(s) located in the substrate.
