We present the latest results on the experimental generation of the position and momentum (x-p) entanglement for bright optical beams [1]. Spatial entanglement of light is a direct demonstration of entanglement of the momentum and position of laser beam as envisioned in the original publication by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [2]. Spatial entanglement has potential applications in quantum imaging systems and for quantum communication protocols. The position-momentum entanglement was observed in the form of the degree of inseparability, which was measured to be no larger than 0.76.
