Colour centres in diamond, especially the nitrogen-vacancy colour centre, promise a new era for quantum technologies. But despite the success of diamond colour centres in laboratory settings, they have had little impact in technology. One critical issue impeding the development of diamond technologies is the difficulty of integrating diamond centres with existing photonic platforms. Here we outline some of our work that attempts to address this concern. We have combined fluorescent nanodiamonds with tellurite glass. To date we have shown single photon emission, coupling of NV emission to microspheres, and primitive magnetic field sensing.
