The range of applications of this unique service, named 'QRBGS', spans fields as diverse as advanced scientific simulations, cryptographic data protection and security applications, as well as virtual entertainment – including online gambling and computer games.
'QRBGS' is an acronym for 'Quantum Random Bit Generator Service'. The service is based on 'Quantum Random Number Generator' – or QRBG for short – which is itself an innovative electronic device developed and built two years ago by RBI’s researchers. Overwhelming majority of other random number generators in use today don’t actually provide the 'true' random numbers, but instead so-called 'pseudo-random' numbers. They use various algorithms to pick the numbers from large pre-compiled databases of numbers obtained by e.g. rolling the dice. Hence, anyone who has access to such a database from which the pseudo-random number is picked, can accurately predict the next number that comes out of such generators. On the other hand, QRBG uses the inherently unpredictable quantum process of photon emission to generate random numbers, and as an output it provides the 'true’ random numbers which are impossible to predict.
The new RBI’s QRBGS service enables real-time internet access to QRGB device through several network access modes, such as C/C++ libraries, web services and Mathematica/Matlab client add-ons. The QRBG device itself is located and operated at the RBI and is connected to the internet through advanced computer technologies such as computer clusters and GRID networks. The use of QRBG service is free of charge for academic and scientific community.

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.
Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...
Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
