Research has shown that the properties of a light beam can be manipulated to perform ultrafast all-optical signal processing in the time domain. I will describe our work that uses nonlinear optics to create temporal lenses that can magnify, compress, and Fourier transform optical waveforms in the time domain and show that such manipulation can be extended to the quantum domain. Through use of more exotic lenses, temporal gaps in light beams can be opened and closed which can be used to cloak events over short periods of time.
