We present a method of determining the distribution of sizes of ferroelectric 180° domains in BaTiO3, using second-harmonic scattering. We find that the domains are rods with approximately square cross sections that extend from the -c to the +c face of the crystal, with widths ranging from 2 to 150 μm.
