Abstract-Direct Detection of Vacuum Fluctuations of the Multi-Terahertz Electric Field

Alfred Leitenstorfer, Claudius Riek, and Denis V. Seletskiy

We show that ultrabroadband electro-optic sampling in free space is able to directly detect the vacuum fluctuations of the electric field, opening up a time-domain approach to quantum statistics that operates on the sub-cycle scale.
