Random Bit Generator Using Delayed Self-Difference of Filtered Amplified Spontaneous Emission

Abstract

We propose a scheme for random bit generation with filtered amplified spontaneous emission (ASE). Using the filtered ASE, we can get larger signal fluctuations than when using directly detected ASE with a photodetector. Utilizing the delayed self-difference technique to improve the symmetry of filtered ASE, we experimentally achieve real-time 2.5-Gbit/s… (More)
