Quantum information processing with photons can be greatly enhanced by incorporating time-multiplexing methods. Not only can time-bin encoding be very useful in its own right, multiplexing techniques can lead to more efficient single- and multi-photon sources, improved detectors, and high-bandwidth quantum memories, as well as enhanced applications such as quantum random walks and entanglement swapping. Here we present an overview of some of the methods used and the results achievable when explicitly using the time degree of freedom of photons.
