 Photonic quantum systems have various advantages for developing quantum information technologies: room-temperature operation, the fastest transmission speed, and highly precise control. For harnessing photonic quantum systems, there are mainly two different approaches. One is the discrete-variable approach where single photons carry quantum information, and the other is the continuous-variable approach where electric fields are employed for encoding quantum information. In particular, the continuous-variable approach has a unique advantage for generating large-scale quantum entanglement: squeezed light and linear optics can be used to generate large entanglement in a deterministic and scalable way. Recently, this continuous-variable approach has attracted much attention for developing quantum simulation (Gaussian Boson Sampling [1,2]) as well as quantum computing (measurement-based quantum computing [3,4]).

In this colloquium, I will present our recent experiments about generating large-scale quantum entanglement in an optical beam. We employ time-frequency modes of ultrashort pulses to exploit a large number of modes contained in a single beam [5]. Using the flexibility of the time-frequency modes, we have generated various quantum entangled states of light (e.g., cluster states). The generated continuous-variable entanglement will find a wide range of applications in quantum technologies: quantum metrology [6] and quantum communication [7] as well as quantum computing [1-4].
