AbstractSMI proposes Gigabit/second Random Number Generator using the white phase noise generated by delayed optical homodyne. In Phase 1, we have successfully demonstrated and delivered to NIST a bench-top proof of concept of the proposed random noise generator operating at >10 Mega-bit/second. This bench-top demonstration unit is operating today in the NIST laboratories. The delivered system successfully passed all the NIST statistical tests that could be finished on that delivery day. We proposed to further increase the speed of the random number generator, to further extend its frequency band to cover from DC to 10 Giga bits/second, and to supply more digital output formats, for example, the SCSI connector, in addition to the existing SMA output. Phase II will see a commercial compact random noise generator targeted at 10 Giga-bits/second, for commercialization in Phase III.
