How to convert an electric dipole moment in Cm to an electric current dipole moment in Am?
I have to estimate the electric dipole moment of an NV center in units of Am. I know that for a regular electric dipole moment it can be estimated using p=ed. With e=1.6*10^-19 and d=0.1 nm (interatomic distance), this however is in units Cm. I dont know how to go to Am

Not sure what exactly you want to do here, but thinking purely in terms of Units, to go from Cm to Am you have to divide by some time ##\Delta t ## in seconds because $$1A=\frac{1C}{1sec}$$
