The workshop brought together an interdisciplinary community of scientists researching localized impurities in diamond. These systems had recently attracted much interest with the nitrogen-vacancy center being the most widely studied. They combine remarkable optical and coherence properties with the ability to couple individual defects. Host materials range from isotopically pure bulk crystals down to nanometer-sized diamond particles. Progress towards potential applications in quantum computing, biology, magnetic sensing, and hybrid devices is well underway.
