We report our systematic study of nitrogen and hydrogen on diamond crystallization under HPHT conditions. Our results provide new experimental evidence for the aggregation of nitrogen impurities (A- and B-centers) and formation of 3107 cm−1 center (hydrogen-related defect) during diamond growth that could provide us deeper insights into the genesis of natural diamond.
