Quantum information processing (QIP) requires unitary operations, measurements and synthesis, manipulation and characterization of arbitrary quantum states. Linear optics provides efficient tools for these purposes. In this review paper, we introduce the elements of linear optics toolbox, and briefly discuss some experimental and theoretical investigations using this toolbox. Our main focus will be the qubit state generation and entanglement extraction using linear optics toolbox.
