FIG. 1.

Schematic of the QRNG setup. A DFB cw laser attenuated approximately to the single photon level impinges upon an InGaAs APD. The APD is biased at a dc level of and a superimposed a square wave modulation of amplitude and frequency fo which drives the device above breakdown. The resulting signal is sent through a self-differencing circuit, to remove the capacitive response, before being amplified and then finally sent to time tagging single photon counting electronics.
