- Abstract: We propose a general approach for the implementation of the hybrid entangled states consisting of continuous variable (CV) and discrete variable (DV) states. Peculiarities of DV-CV interaction mechanism on the beam splitter with arbitrary parameters is key for the for the birth of the entangled hybridity provided that some measurement event is registered in auxiliary mode. We show that the CV states forming output entangled state can consist exclusively of either even or odd Fock states. Various input CV states including Schrodinger cat state (SCSs) are used at the input of the beam splitter where they mix with delocalized single photon. We show the hybrid entanglement generation is observed at any values of the experimental parameters used. Degree of the hybrid entanglement is evaluated. Conditions for generating the maximally entangled hybridity are established.
