Terahertz (THz) wave generation in a periodically poled Mg : Li Nb O 3 crystal was detected by a pump–probe technique and analyzed using frequency and time–frequency spectra. Multifrequency THz waves were clearly observed, providing information about the domain structure of the crystal. A theoretical T-function model was used to fit the frequency spectrum. A method that can characterize the detailed domain structure and THz capabilities of the inner crystal’s parts is proposed.
