    Thermal photons can provide information on the temperature of the new state of matter created at RHIC. In the pT region of 1–3 GeV/c thermal photons are expected to be the dominant direct photon source. Therefore, a possible excess compared to a pure decay photon signal due to a thermal...

    In this note, we present a new sampling method for quantum random bit generation. The new method requires only one single-photon detector and does not measure the time slots of emitted photons. A binary random bit sequence obtained is independent on the time slot of the pulses and the precision...
