We report a polarization-sensitive terahertz time-domain spectroscopy system, which allows the simultaneous measurement of orthogonal components of the polarization of a free-space propagating terahertz beam using a dual electro-optic detection scheme. We demonstrate the operation of our system by measuring the birefringence of lithium niobate, simultaneously obtaining terahertz spectra from two orthogonal crystallographic directions.
