What sort of wild technology do you need to entangle particles?

I need to know what sort of equipment one uses to "entangle" particles. Where would I find this sort of information?

I've been playing around with a story idea (possibly extendable into novel form) that involves some of the odder stuff that people have been doing with entangled particles (quantum information teleportation, and more specifically, Masahiro Hotta's quantum energy teleportation
). I'm trying for realism, as much as is possible, and I'm running into a problem - I have no idea what sort of equipment would be used for something like this.
Does entangling two particles involve CERN-level high-energy physics? Careful isolation from all outside influences? I've been able to track down a lot of stuff about what entanglement is on Wikipedia and the Internet at large, but aside from a few lab pictures, there's not much about the actual devices and procedures involved.
