How do you make oxygen?

All this week I have been learning about aircraft safety systems, one of which is a series of emergency oxygen systems. Those on the C17 claim to contain a solid state oxygen source, whilst other aircraft contain Dräger brand emergency breathing apparatus that the promo video claims crates a burst of pure oxygen and then converts exhaled carbon dioxide to oxygen.
I wonder how they could possibly work?
