Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) color centers in diamond nanoparticles (NanoDiamonds, NDs) have a great number of applications, in particular in quantum information processing and as cellular fluorescent labels. In this work we compare the photoluminescence properties of a single NV color center embedded in a 30 nm diameter nanodiamond to that of a single organic fluorescent molecule. We then compare the photoluminescence properties of NDs prepared under different conditions in order to find the optimal parameters to achieve a high fluorescence yield. The results of this study are of interest for the applications of small and bright diamond nanoparticles in nanophotonics and biology.
