The generation of single photons in random polarization states from diamond could have significance in the development of quantum cryptography and the testing of fundamental problems in quantum mechanics. Until now, much of the research has been focused on the generation of single photons in pure polarization states. To ensure true randomness, it was essential for the team to show that the polarizations between photons were not correlated with each other.
