Abstract

Abstract The negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy center in diamond is highly suited to many quantum information processing applications. Although the center has been comprehensively observed experimentally, there still remains contention regarding some of the key aspects of the current theoretical model of the center. In this article, the explicit development of the defect-molecule model of the center and the implications of the accumulated ab initio results are discussed. The aspects of the model that require further ab initio investigation are clearly identified and a possible Hartree-Fock extension is motivated.
