We propose a new approach to generate entangled states, both hybrid and consisting exclusively of continuous variable (CV) states. A single-mode squeezed vacuum is mixed with a delocalized single photon on an arbitrary beam splitter with subsequent registration of measurement outcomes in auxiliary mode. The entangled hybrid states consisting of CV and discrete variable (DV) states are generated whenever any event is measured in auxiliary mode. Negativity is used as a measure of entanglement. Under certain initial conditions, the conditional state becomes as entangled as possible. New types of CV states, either even or odd depending on the parity of the Fock states forming the superpositions, are introduced. If the conditional entangled hybrid state is mixed with a single-mode squeezed vacuum with the subsequent registration of measurement results in DV mode, then the new state becomes CV entangled, i.e., its orthogonal components are already CV states. The entanglement synthesis can be expanded to implement a high-complexity quantum network.
