Abstract/Artist's Statement

Quantum Random Number Generators(QRNGs), or True Random Number Generators, generate random numbers based on naturally unpredictable(or hard-to-predict) sources. Their unpredictability results in a broad application in cryptography and technology. Their sources range from nuclear decay gamma rays to cosmic rays, then to quantum optics. This thesis aims to explore various randomness sources and compare their efficiency by running a series of randomness tests. The specific setup for each random number generator will also be presented.
