Paper Abstract

This paper describes the proposal of a fully electronic quantum noise source for random number generators for utilize in mathematics and quantum cryptography. It uses the phenomenon of shot noise generated by current carriers in reversely polarized semiconductor junctions due to inner photoelectric effect. Described device is built to present that the shot noise in simple semiconductor devices can be amplified and sampled, to produce a random bits data stream whose quality is sufficient for all above mentioned applications.
