Optical quantum random number generator

Published in Journal of Modern Optics. 2000, vol. 47, no. 4, p. 595-598
Abstract A physical random number generator based on the intrinsic randomness of quantum mechanics is described. The random events are realized by the choice of single photons between the two outputs of a beam splitter. We present a simple device, which minimizes the impact of the photon counters' noise, dead-time and after pulses.
