    Abstract

    We propose a method to generate physical random numbers based on intermittent optical chaos. Intermittent chaotic output is produced in a semiconductor laser subjected to optical feedback embedded in a photonic integrated circuit. This dynamics is characterized by a temporal waveform organized in a succession of laminar regions of low amplitude and bursts of high amplitude. The temporal randomness ruling the alternation of successive laminar regions and bursts is used as an entropy source to generate sequences of random bits. We compare the performances of the exclusive OR and reverse methods implemented in the bit generation process and evaluate the quality of the random bits with the Rabbit test of TestU01 for different bit sequences lengths.
