This contribution reviews our recent progress on the generation of squeezed light , and also the recent squeezed-light enhancement of the gravitational wave detector GEO 600 . GEO 600 is currently the only GW observatory operated by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration in its search for gravitational waves. With the help of squeezed states of light it now operates with its best ever sensitivity, which not only proves the qualification of squeezed light as a key technology for future gravitational wave astronomy but also the usefulness of quantum entanglement.
