We study experimentally and numerically the second-harmonic Čerenkov emission with two different characteristic azimuthal intensity distributions in strontium barium niobate with a random structure of χ 2 nonlinearity. We monitor in situ the Čerenkov emission during domain switching and show that a change of domain size and shape results in a fourfold azimuthal modulation of the Čerenkov cone.
