The feasibility of such experiments is demonstrated by realistic calculations adopting a thin ZnTe electro-optic crystal and stable few-femtosecond laser pulses. We show that nonlinear mixing of a short near-infrared probe pulse with multi-terahertz vacuum field modes leads to an increase of the signal variance with respect to the shot noise level. The vacuum contribution increases significantly for appropriate length of the nonlinear crystal, short probe pulse durations, tight focusing, and sufficiently large number of photons per probe pulse. If the vacuum input is squeezed, the signal variance depends on the probe delay. Temporal positions with noise level below the pure vacuum may be traced with a sub-cycle accuracy.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Moskalenko, Andrey S.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Riek, Claudius</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Moskalenko, Andrey S.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
