    The energy transfer upconversion (ETU) mechanism is known to be the most efficient route for the conversion of near infrared (NIR) light to visible emission in Ln3+-co-doped systems. In this work, we examined these energy ...
  • Coherence-based quantum random number generator 

    Álvarez Velásquez, Juan Rafael (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-08-27)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    We consider the random change of the phase of a laser as the physical source of randomness that allows the implementation a new type of quantum random number generator (QRNG) . We analyze the phase noise model of a laser ...
