The optical Raman interactions that excites and manipulate spin coherences in nitrogen-vacancy (N-V) diamond using optical laser fields were analyzed. The high optical transition rate enables the higher gate speed and the larger number of quantum logic operations that could be performed within the spin coherence lifetime. The nondegenerated four wave mixing signal amplitude as a function of Raman laser beam intensities was also investigated. It was estimated that NV diamond crystal was capable of more than 2000 quantum logic operations per coherence lifetime.
