Recent research work

Quantum random number generator with discarding boundary bin measurement and multiinterval sampling


Authors:Zhenguo Lu, Jianqiang Liu, Xuyang Wang, Pu Wang, Yongmin Li, and Kunchi Peng

A quantum random number generator (QRNG) provides a reliable means for the generation of true random numbers. The inherent randomness of the vacuum fluctuations makes the quantum vacuum state a superior source of entropy.
