Abstract
An inordinate amount of time, effort (and paper) has been spent trying to find a way to stabilize laser-diode frequencies, but our research team has been working on the premise, that frequency instability can, in fact, have its up-sides. In the present work, we focus on a method that uses laser diodes’ own noise to generate physical random numbers. Introducing a frequency discriminator as a reference, we control and stabilize the difference between the frequency reference and the laser frequency, thereby generating random numbers at a suitable point.
