We consider a simple quantum temporal imaging system on the basis of a time lens implemented by a parametric nonlinear optical process with a chirped pump. We review the main results of the modal theory of temporal imaging, developed recently by us. We illustrate this theory by a concrete example of type-I non-collinear sum-frequency generation process, where the phase matching is limited by the temporal walk-off of the signal and the idler waves. We have shown that the temporal modal functions of such an imaging system are chirped Hermite-Gauss functions.
