We exploit efficient dispersion relations, which were developed for terahertz spectroscopy, to show their validity for testing linear and nonlinear optical spectra. As an example, we deal with the measured data for complex reflectivity of a KCl crystal and complex nonlinear susceptibility of a polysilane. It is suggested that the spectral data presented in the literature both for the KCl and the polysilane are consistent with the presented spectra analysis method.
