This thesis focuses on the development, characterisation and use of a novel material, nanodiamonds, for biological and quantum imaging applications. The thesis examines the use of the nitrogen-vacancy optical defect centre in nanodiamond. This centre is an excellent candidate for biological and quantum imaging applications due to its photostable fluorescence as well as its unique spin properties.
