Measuring, comparing, and quantifying optical random number generators

Check out our recent invited perspectives article entitled “Recommendations and illustrations for the evaluation of photonic random number generators,” which was published this week in APL Photonics, and featured in an AIP Scilight piece.  We offer a fresh perspective on

Harvesting entropy and quantifying the transition from noise to chaos in a photon-counting feedback loop

Aaron Hagerstrom defends Ph.D.

Congratulations to Aaron Hagerstrom, who successfully defended his dissertation! Aaron’s research during the past 5 years has been featured so far in Nature Physics, Nature Communications and PNAS.

Research on Entropy, Noise and Chaos appears in PNAS

Our recent experimental study of time-delayed optoelectronic feedback loops incorporating a photon-counting detector has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS). This paper shows a transition from single-photon shot noise to deterministic chaos, and describes

Caitlin Williams Defends PhD Thesis
