Amplified Optomechanical Transduction of Virtual Radiation Pressure

Here we describe how, utilizing a time-dependent optomechanical interaction, a mechanical probe can provide an amplified measurement of the virtual photons dressing the quantum ground state of an ultrastrongly coupled light-matter system. We calculate the thermal noise tolerated by this measurement scheme and discuss an experimental setup in which it could be realized.
