This is the first report of the dynamic behavior of lithium-cation encapsulated in a C60 fullerene cage with terahertz (THz) spectroscopy. The THz spectroscopy of lithium-cation showed specific bands at 4.6 and 4.9 terahertz assigned to the two reciprocating vibrational modes, respectively, in the inside space of the fullerene cage.
