Is there any documentations I can read on segments? How should it be defined and used in experiements?

There's not a lot of documentation yet on that. Segments define specific groups of user ids, for example "paid users" or "people who signed up in 2020". If you apply a segment to an experiment, it will only include those user ids in the analysis.
It's one of 3 settings that help filter out people who are marked as "seeing" an experiment in your database, but they didn't actually see it. For example, if your experiment is in a popup modal, but you track people on page load. • Segments limit to a specific set of user ids • Activation Metric limits to people who perform a certain action (e.g. opening the popup modal) • Custom SQL Filter is for everything else where you need complete control over who is included
