Immobilization of fluorescent nanoparticles on graphene is an important step in the assembly of certain graphene-based photonic devices as well as in optical visualization of graphene and its defects. Hereby we report a viable approach to deposit diamond nanoparticles on a wide-area graphene substrate. It is demonstrated that a suitable plasma treatment leads to a selective immobilization of deposited nanodiamond on graphene with practically no agglomeration. Absence of photoemission from the individual adsorbed diamond nanoparticles suggests an energy transfer from the excited N-V centers to graphene.
