Projective measurements onto entangled quantum states (commonly referred to as "entangled measurements") are an essential tool for many quantum information processing applications, for example quantum repeaters and quantum-state teleportation. The most well-studied such measurement is the Bell-state measurement for two qubits. Here, we introduce a two-photon multi-mode entangled-state measurement scheme based upon sum-frequency generation (SFG) followed by mode-resolved single-photon detection. We show that the mode-resolved detection of the output of a two-photon SFG process acts as a projective measurement onto the two-photon entangled state produced by the time-reversed parametric downconversion process in the perturbative limit. We analyze the applicability of such a measurement both for temporal- and spatial-mode entanglement, and show how this can be exploited for high-dimensional quantum teleportation, entanglement swapping, and quantum illumination.
