We apply, for the first time to our knowledge, photorefractive grating spectroscopy to obtain not-yet-known data on the anisotropy of the dielectric permittivity of Sn2P2S6. Two independent techniques are used, one based on measurements of the amplitude of the space-charge field grating as a function of grating spacing and the other based on measurements of the grating decay time, also as a function of grating spacing. Both techniques provide close values for the anisotropy, which appears to be well pronounced, a ratio epsilon(xx)/epsilon(zz) approximate to 4 is revealed for two of the three independent components of the dielectric tensor. Our data also allow us to conclude that the charge mobility is nearly isotropic in the same plane, mu(xx)/mu(zz) approximate to 1.
