High-dimensional photonic entanglement is a promising candidate for error-protected quantum information processing with improved capacity. Encoding high-dimensional qudits in the carrier frequency of photons combines ease of generation, universal single-photon gates via electro-optic modulation and wave shaping, and compatibility with fiber transmission for high-capacity quantum communication. Recent landmark experiments have impressively demonstrated quantum interference of a few frequency modes, but the certification of massive-dimensional frequency entanglement has remained an open challenge. Here we report a record certification of discretized frequency entanglement, combined with a novel approach for certification that is both highly efficient and nonlocally implementable, opening the possibility for utilizing this encoding in quantum communication.View full paper
